We've been given a doctors SQL database dump from MyPractice - and the doctor has asked us to export his clinical letters, lab results, images etc.


We've looked through the db structure and see they have patients in the Person table, that's straightforward.


However storing notes, letters, etc is a bit less obvious. RecordData and PartyData contain some relevant rows, but there are also titles such as Column1 through Column15 which are less self-explanatory. For example Column2 of RecordData references various pdf filenames, but files were not provided in the export. 


Does anyone have any experience with this database structure at all?

You can contact the developer directly, via the ‘contact’ information on the Mypractice website.

You might find that the documents are not saved as as blob data at all. Its very common to "attach" files to a patient record thats just a link to a file on a central server.

Happy to have an out of public with an NDA as you have as you have patient data that requires a level of sensitivity.
