iSanté uses the combination of a site code + the patient's local site ID. We realize that this approach doesn't follow best practices around patient identifiers and are looking in to operationalizing the suggestions in this UNAIDS publication around generating unique patient identifiers.
@darius we definitely saw your comments. I'll respond now to them soon.
Here's the current status of the project:
- We have OpenEMPI up and running in a demo environment with the following identifiers installed:
-- OpenEMPI Enterprise Client ID (Standard GUID)
-- Haiti NationalID (patient demographic ID described by David)
-- Legacy iSanté Clinic Patient ID (Site Specific sequentially numbered Patient ID)
-- Legacy iSanté PatientID (Globally Unique Legacy iSanté Clinic Patient ID prefixed with a site code)
- Identify a national unique identifier generation algorithm and generation source
- Link the registration process to OpenEMPI building on the work of the GSoC project.
