How to import Bulk Data into open emr, via JSON or CSV files

We are using openEMR platform, and currently we are looking for adding bulk patient information into openEMR. We found the details only for adding single patient record, It would be great if someone suggest us a way to import bulk data into openEMR using JSON or CSV format.


Currently the feature is not available in OpenEMR. If you have data in csv or excel file, you can write an script to extract the details from the file and make an corresponding insert to the tables. We suggest that script will make your work simpler.


Thanks for your quick response. we will try that solution and get back here if we run into any issues.


I have written several scripts recently that import patient data from a .csv file. If you are still having issues, I can offer my services to you.

Thanks Daniel, for your help. I was able to generate the file and am able to add data. Thanks everyone for your help.
