Hi Grace, thank you very much!
in the country where I live, Colombia, the MRS systems must have certain patient information always visible next to their name, age, address and phone number. this is a national regulation and any Health Care Provider Institute must comply with it to operate legally in the country.
The additional information requested by this regulation is
- Country of birth
- National or foreign identity document (foreigner in our case where an important percentage of Venezuelan population lives).
- Marital Status (Single, married or free union)
- Occupation (employed or unemployed. If employed, what is your profession or job title).
- Accompanying person’s data, such as name, identity document, telephone and mail (when patients arrive in very bad health condition, they usually come with a person who accompanies them, if that is the case, it is required to have the data of that person).
Surely each country’s legislation is different
