Technical Details

This bridge passes the patient's Patient ID, First Name, Last Name, Birthdate, SSN, Home Phone Number, and Work Phone Number. If there is a referral attached and the referral is flagged as Is Doctor, then the Referring Providers referralnum, First Name, Last Name, Address, and Phone Number are also passed over.

If the patient is a patient clone, the bridge transfers the non-clone patient information.
