The same patient should not be on a laptop twice with overlapping admission periods. If there is a patient like that you will get an error and you will not be able to send any patients. Function Overlap defines what it means for two timeframes to overlap.


Duplicates of the following with overlapping first Service tmp entry / Dispo DtTm:


  • 2022-03-31 - updated to use first Service tmp entry instead of Accept DtTm
  • 2021-01-22 - better labels and included the relevant dates right in the query listing.
  • 2019-10-27 - changed to only include if recordstatus is complete or incomplete
