Kara’s tip: how to use the Patient Identifier data field

The Patient Identifier is what you would like to use to identify the patient. In most

In most cases, an UR number is what is used. Some people may use first 3 letter of the patient’s first name and first 3 letters of the patient’s last name. ‘

It is important that you do not use the patient’s full name, so they remain unidentifiable to anyone other than you.
