SummaryExplanation of how to upload a CSV file

There are 3 ways to upload CSV files into HD4DP:

  • Manually
    • In de HD4DP application
    • In the specific folders on the server (provisioning)
  • Automatically
    • in the specific folders on the server (fasttrack)

The file can be maximum 6 MB

When using the manual upload by using te application or putting files on the server (provisioning), the registrations still need to be manually submitted.

When using the fasttrack methodsubmission is done automatically.

Manually in the HD4DP application

Data can be uploaded by using the same approach as we use for the stable data.

More information can be found in the article CSV download and upload for stable data.

Manually in the application folders

HD4DP allows to import files from the folders used by the application.
Save the created CSV file in the correct register folder of your organization or sub-organisation. The folders of the sub-organizations are to be find in the subfolders of the main organization.

When uploading a CSV, a check is performed for each record if any corresponding record is already available in the application. The check for corresponding data is based on the unique id. If a record is already available in the application a merge takes place between the existing record and the new CSV. In case of conflicts, the values of the new CSV are implemented.
The uploaded registrations will be automatically uploaded in the HD4DP application.

They will need to be manually validated and submitted in the application.

Automatically in the application folders

There is as well a full automatic way for uploading a CSV file. The goal of the CSV is to automatically transmit completely valid CSV files to Healthdata without human intervention. Cf. CSV fast track

In most cases when this option is used, the CSV is not only automatically uploaded but the CSV was also created automatically before. The responsible for HD4DP of an organisation will arrange the technical set-up for the fast track. 

The uploaded registrations will be automatically submitted and sent to the HD4RES application.
