RPMS Encounters are screened before being exported to the NDW and any encounter records that are for patients whose name begins with the standard phrase “DEMO,PATIENT” are excluded. It is important to note, however, that non-RPMS submissions, RPMS non-standard demo names, or RPMS name changes made after an encounter is sent will all circumvent this exclusion.
RPMS Registrations are not
screened to exclude patients whose name begins with the standard phrase “DEMO,PATIENT”. Those received by the NDW may
be activated by visits received from other sources (from the Fiscal Intermediary for example).
