Errors that have occurred during data entry into the main patient records computer are detected by DRS, and are shown in this report. These entries indicate conflict with previously existing patient entries.
Error detection is performed using a pattern matching algorithm that examines matches on unique fields such as MRN and SSN, which should indicate a patient revisit. Where other fields such as MRN, SSN, or birthday do not match between the two records, an error is reported. Accuracy of detection of this type of error is 100%.
