How to create a custom patient Identifier

Hi Guys, I am in a situation where I need to create a patient Identifier made up of initials of patient name, patient mother, location Id and a sequential number…when this patient is enrolled in a certain program. I dont know where to begin honestly since IDs are more managed in the core application. I need your help on how to achieve this regards all

@ganguyo you can define your identifier type to a unique identifier for all patient enrolled into a particular program to have something like this ABC00100074 or any format you wish. Go to Administration - Patients - Manage Identifier Types - Add patient Identifier Type. You can configure the IDs with Regex Formatting methods, and set validations if so desire.

Hope this helps.


Thanks mate on it!

What will be the Regex for ABC/TMT/1234

I am curious because it appears the accepted format is unique.
