I highly recommend to encode in xml format and place it in the server,
similar as to the what we do in the case of "WHO essential medicines".
There are other ways to do a "batch input" via front-end, for example,
but that will only last for your current DB.

Take a look at the file
"health/tryton/health/data/WHO_medicaments.xml" as an example.

Same as for the categories... check the file

One more thing... I highly recommend to create a separate module with
all the localization and specifics of your health center (reports,
views, methods, access rights...), so it does not interfere with the
main modules.
