I"m trying to export a test patient’s history and diagnoses and import it into another instance

For export you need to ensure the ccdaservice is installed. A README describes: https://github.com/openemr/openemr/blob/master/ccdaservice/README.md

OpenEMR version 6.0.0(2) is pretty close with HL7 rel 1.1 however, importing CCDA ToC documents is iffy on some templates.

A lot of work has been done in master though so good luck.
