Patient ID

Description

An external reference ID (for example, a patient's medical record number) that uniquely identifies a patient in another system. ResMed ReSupply combines this field with the billing system and location to ensure a patient is not imported twice.

Is data required for all patients? Yes
Field restrictions 50 character limit
How the information is used once imported

This field will be used for matching purposes on subsequent imports to avoid duplicate patient records within the same organization. 

Text-based patient IDs

If text is used, this will also be imported and used as the patient ID.
