Patient data

Patient data is a section in cases (visible in edit mode) where patient demographics can be entered. The fields include:

  • age
  • gender

Age

Please round the patient age to the nearest 5 years for adult patients (e.g. >18 years). This is an additional privacy measure. 

For paediatric patients, clearly, this would be inappropriate. 

The format should include the units (usually "years"). For example: 

  • "19" becomes "20 years"
  • "52" becomes "50 years"
  • "3 months" does not change
