So I believe what you need to do here is merge the two patients MRNs together since one is already in use. Do you have a FilePatientMerge_CMS message definition/interface built in ConnectR yet? If so, it is most likely waiting for an ADT^A34 message. If you do not have a FilePatientMerge_CMS interface you can do this manually in the Patient Merge tool but I would blank out fields 92-95 first in order to have the new registration post successfully. Once the two MRNs are merged the FilePatient call should work without issue.

Actually Ryan, I was able to resolve this. We are getting A47 Change Pt Identifiers transactions.
It is FilePatient_CMS.
Fields 92-95
92 is the old MRN. Whereas field 3 is the new mrn.
I also had to remove PAtientXID field from mapping for these as well as that was trumping matching.
