I have to use ROW_Number for Union All Syntax which combines two tables. Just confused on implementing this syntax. Do i need to transfer end results to a View Table or Table and then use row_number ?? Looking for best optimized results as because, we have around 10,000 records and keep growing.

,ROW_NUMBER() over (PARTITION BY LastName,Firstname,dateofbirth,
                                                             City ORDER BY
                                                             dateofbirth ASC) as RowNumber

and then i need to pick by rownumber = 1



select PatCustId = '0',FirstName,LastName,DateOfBirth,City from voeorderwide
                                        WHERE  datefilled >= DATEADD(DAY, -90, DATEDIFF(DAY, 0, GETDATE()))
                                        Union All
                                 select PatCustId = '0',FirstName,LastName,DateOfBirth,City from voeorderhistorywide
                                        WHERE datefilled >= DATEADD(DAY, -90, DATEDIFF(DAY, 0, GETDATE()))
