Users admit patients based on six identifiers: SSN, first name, last name, date of birth, gender and Medicare Claim number.


A possible duplicate patient message occurs when one or the more of the six identifiers do not match. When you receive this message complete the attached possible duplicate patient form and fax to your IPRO ESRD Network. If you are unsure about the fax number, please visit the IPRO ESRD Network Program Contact Page.
