Comparing Volume by Dates

I need to develop a visual to show the number of patients admitted compared to the number of patients discharged by month, year.  I have the admission and discharge dates in the same table, and currently this is connected to a separate Date Table using the discharge date.   The issue I'm having is with the date table that drives the months.  How do I show two different date ranges in one chart?   For example 500 people can admit on Jan 5, and 450 people can discharge on Jan 5 - each set has unique dates. 

 

 Sample DataSample Data

 

I tried separating the Admission data into a unique table and connecting that to the Date tabel using the Admission date, but It didn't help. 

 

I considered not using a Date Table, but then I'm still stuck with the date issue since I need to have one for the visual.

 

Thank you.

Hi,

Create a non-active relationship (Many to One and Single) from the Admission date to the Date column of the Calendar Table.  To your visual, drag Year and Month name from the Calendar Table.  Write these measures

Discharged = distinctcount(Data[Patient ID])

Admitted = calculate([discharged],userelationship(Data[Admission date],Calendar[date]))

Hope this helps.

Hi Ashish,

 

I appreciate the assistance.

When creating the Admitted measure, I'm getting the followng error: USERELATIONSHIP function can only use the two columns references participating in relationship.

 

Admitted Vol = CALCULATE('Disch Opt Data'[Discharged Vol],USERELATIONSHIP('Disch Opt Data'[Admit Date Time],'Date Table'[Complete Date].[Date]))
 
Any ideas?

I got it.  Needed to remove [Date] from the compelte date.

Thank you!
