[[Encounter Event]]

Matched on: An Encounter can contain zero or one pending-admit [[Encounter Event]]s. If the [[Encounter]] has been matched, then there will be at most one pending-admit [[Encounter Event]], so no other IDs are required for matching.

When matched: The pending-admit [[Encounter Event]] is replaced with the information in this message.

When not matched: The pending-admit [[Encounter Event]] will be added to the [[Encounter]].


Matched on: PKB maintains an internal link joining the [[Encounter]] to the [[Appointment]]. No additional external IDs required.

When matched: The [[Appointment]] information is replaced with the information in this message.

When not matched: A new [[Appointment]] is created and associated with this [[Encounter]].


This is identical in format to the ADT A05.
