What is the difference between 'Patient Records' and 'Patient Files'?
The key difference is that 'Patient Files' are documents that a Discharge Planner manually uploads into AIDA. 'Patient Records', on the other hand, are documents that AIDA automatically pulls in from a Discharge Planner's Electonic Medical Record (EMR) system. This functionality is only available to certain Discharge Planners, and, therefore, might not be a feature on your Admission Dashboard.
As always, the best thing to do when new referral lands on your Admission Dashboard is to click the 'Respond' button, as this will pull up the referral and you will be able to identify the patient's metadata, Clinical Care Criteria, as well as see any Patient Files and Patient Records -- if available.
