The ClientVisitGUID field is the identifier used in Cognos to designate a hospitalization. We collect it to help deal with multiple encounters (eg see also Hospitalization ID, Visit Admit DtTm) and with uniquely matching components of Cognos data to profiles.

One advantage would be that ClientVisitGUID remains the same even when other data is corrected for a John Doe. One disadvantage is that not all our profiles are entered from Cognos, and this field would be blank for those that are not. Collectors can't look the field up in EPR, so it would have to come from Cognos data.
