Patient Registration Details


If patient is new, registration data is entered and a new visit is created.  Otherwise just a new visit is created.  Once the new encounter has been created the patient is moved to the next stage in the patient workflow.  For example, at some sites this will be into the billing queue for the patient to pay their initial fees; others may move the patient directly to a clinic or triage queue.  The patient can be moved through this workflow by the records personnel who decide where the patient should go and can put this into the appropriate queue, if one exists.Describe what is done by the function. Where algorithms, equations, or other logic are used, they are described here. If calculations are done utilizing the methods of specific standards or references, these are cited. Database definitions are also included where relevant.

The patient will be identified and their data will be collected or updated.  Additionally, the patient visit will be started, provided they continue past registration to some other stage.

Describe the outputs of the function. Where a user interface description is relevant, it is included. Define any reports.
