sql query - MS SQL Server

I have a table defined as:

CREATE TABLE [dbo].[PatientMeasurementCube](
	[pat_id] [int] NOT NULL,
	[DateValue] [date] NULL,
	[msr_id] [int] NULL,
	[CarriedForward] [bit] NULL

Open in new window

Pat_id is the patient identity, DateValue is the year and month of the entry, and CarriedForward indicates if this row is the same for the patients previous row. i.e. CarriedForward is 0 when its a new row.
The data can look like:

22, 2014-01-01,  76, 0
22, 2014-02-01, 89, 1
22, 2014-03,01,  102, 1
22, 2015-01-01, 676, 0
22, 2015-02-01, 762, 1
22, 2015-03,01,  981, 1
26, 2015-01-01, 872,  0
26, 2015-02-01, 987, 1
26, 2015-03-01, 999, 0

Open in new window

In reality the table contains data for 10000+ patients, and the datevalue ranges from 2011-11-01 to 2015-06-01

Can someone suggest a query that would return the row that has the latest datevalue for the year for each patient where the value of CarriedForward is 0.

So from the above data we would get:

22, 2014-01-01,  76, 0
22, 2015-01-01, 676, 0
26, 2015-03-01, 999, 0

Open in new window

Note that some years the patient will not have a record with a CarriedForward value of 0.

I do not oppose the accepted/assisted solution, I just wish to make a comment about Victor's approach.  While there is nothing wrong with it inherently, it might produced undesired results.

If the patient ever has two records associated with the same date AND that is the latest date in the given year, then Victor's example would bring BOTH of those records forward.

Just something to keep in mind!  ;-)
