Our data migration process is different

We take care of the hard stuff behind the scenes by using our custom migration engine to clean, sort, and transform your data. Best of all, it’s quick and painless for you!


Our process

We transform all your data into usable information

We normalize your data into a global catalog of codes, procedures, lab tests, and drugs that follows AAHA and AVMA standards. 

In other words, we clean it up and make it presentable so it’s easy to turn your data into meaningful action from day one.

We built a migration engine to get the most from your data

Migration Wizard

This is your part of the migration software. Install it on your computer to help us access your PIMS data. 

The Matcher

This is our part of the migration software. The Matcher cleans, categorizes, and matches your data against our global catalog.

What do we support?


We’re constantly expanding our list. Reach out even if your PIMS isn’t listed and we’ll work something out.


Though it varies PIMS to PIMS, we strive to migrate ALL your data.

What to expect

We break down data migration step by step to help you understand your own role, as well as what happens behind the scenes.

We migrate your data

Ready to play? Data migration begins

We use the Migration Wizard to take a sample of your basic data and import it into the rhapsody play environment. 

At this stage, we’re setting up rhapsody with just some of your data. It’s not a complete import, so many items are missing.

We prepare your data for actual use.
