Definition

A patient, otherwise known as the beneficiary of the care, is defined by:

  • A Directory Registration Number (NIR) or social insurance number
  • A date of birth
  • A birth rank

The combination of these 3 criteria is necessary to identify the beneficiary of the care because one or more beneficiaries can be attached to a social insurance card.

The number of patients thus corresponds to the distinct number of social insurance numbers and dates and ranks of birth of beneficiaries of the treatment.
