I suspect this is all legacy, we would use the proper dates and times from EPR now, right? If so I propose we delete this page without leaving a legacy entry since knowledge of this is not really required to makes sense of our data. Ttenbergen 22:08, 2020 October 15 (CDT)

The transfer time rules constrain Admit date and time and Discharge date and time for patients who are moving from one place where we collect to another to allow detection of continuous hospitalizations. One concern is to avoid time overlaps.

Minimum of 30 minutes between hospital

Use a minimum of 30 minutes between discharge date/time from one location and admit date/time at another location at a different hospital.

Background

This rule is relevant to Category:Multiple Encounter linking and Continuous Stay. There have been inconsistencies of transit times for patients being transferred from one location where we collect to another. This causes problems in automatically identifying patients on Continuous Stays. Sometimes data will indicate that a patient is admitted to one location before he is discharged from another. Sometimes the delay is so long that we won't identify continuous stays. Therefore, data collectors need to check with their colleagues and coordinate dates and times as described above.
