I'm sure there are many ways to skin a cat and probably many ways to do what I'm trying to do in the SQL below.

Can someone show me an easier, FASTER, way to do this?
This will be part of a larger SP returning ptEncounter records based on criteria passed to the SP. I am open to using temp tables or variables to store then return the results.

Essentially, I will be providing indicators in the UI based on the values returned in the DictationState column
returned from the stored procedure based on this criteria:

"        Green  An entry in ptDictation for that MRN/DOS with a status of approved.
"        Grey   ptSchedule records linked to that Encounter do contain an OV, but these is no entry in ptDictation
          for that MRN/DOS or if there is an entry where the status is not approved.
"        White  ptSchedule records linked to that Encounter do not contain an OV.

an OV is same as having ptSchedule.ApptTypeID = 5
DOS = DateOfService

I have 2 ptEncounter records that meet the criteria of MRN = '5079' and DateOfService = '07/5/2004'
I have 2 ptSchedule records that meet the criteria of MRN = '5079' and StartDtTm = '07/5/2004'
I have 9 ptDictation records that meet the criteria of MRN = '5079' and DOS = '07/5/2004'
I should only have two values returned.

Schemas below.

select CASE
       WHEN EXISTS (SELECT d.MRN FROM ptDictation d 
                    INNER JOIN ptEncounter ee 
                        ON ee.MRN = d.MRN AND d.DOS = e.DateOfService 
                    WHERE d.Status = 'Approved')          THEN 2
       WHEN EXISTS (SELECT s.MRN FROM ptSchedule s 
                    INNER JOIN ptEncounter eee 
                        ON eee.MRN = s.MRN 
                        AND CONVERT(varchar,s.StartDtTm, 10) = CONVERT(varchar,e.DateofService, 10)
                    WHERE s.ApptTypeID = 5) THEN 1
       ELSE 0
       END as DictationState
FROM ptEncounter e
WHERE e.MRN = '5079' 
AND   e.DateOfService = '07/5/2004'

Does this return 2 records?

SELECT *
FROM ptEncounter e
WHERE e.MRN = '5079'
AND   e.DateOfService = '07/5/2004'

My guess is that it does not.

How many rows does this return?

select CASE
       WHEN EXISTS (SELECT d.MRN FROM ptDictation d
                    INNER JOIN ptEncounter ee
                        ON ee.MRN = d.MRN AND d.DOS = e.DateOfService
                    WHERE d.Status = 'Approved')          THEN 2
       WHEN EXISTS (SELECT s.MRN FROM ptSchedule s
                    INNER JOIN ptEncounter eee
                        ON eee.MRN = s.MRN
                        AND CONVERT(varchar,s.StartDtTm, 10) = CONVERT(varchar,e.DateofService, 10)
                    WHERE s.ApptTypeID = 5) THEN 1
       ELSE 0
       END as DictationState
FROM ptEncounter e
WHERE e.MRN = '5079'
AND   e.DateOfService = '07/5/2004'

Two. But, this is going to be part of a larger stored procedure that returns the value for each record in ptEncounter and it takes 6 secs to return all rows.
There are currently 340412 records in ptEncounter and it takes 18 seconds to run only the
SQL above with no WHERE clause.

OK, I follow you now.  There are a few things...first, make sure there are indexes on any field in which you're joining tables or in which you're specifying criteria.  next, see if there is any way you can get aroudn this statement:

AND CONVERT(varchar,s.StartDtTm, 10) = CONVERT(varchar,e.DateofService, 10)

No way to get around that date convert because StartDtTm has the TIME part and DateOfService does not.

On ptEncounter there is an index on MRN but not on DateOfService.

Add the index to see if it helps.  Are there indexes on ptSchedule and ptDictation?

ptDictation, yes one MRN and and one on DOS
   Should I create one on both columns?

ptSchedule, not on either.
   Just created one on both columns
   I also created one on EncounterID, but the data I currently have has no EncounterIDs as it is
   legacy data and was imported incorrectly and We cannot tie the appointments back to the
   particular encounter.

ptEncounter MRN only, not on DateOfService.
   Just created one on both columns

You've done just about all you can do for this query...consider snapshotting the data into a table every few hours and query from the table.

I've gotten other options from SQLServer Central so, apparently, you are not correct.
