Person ID field
|Data Element (edit)|
|CCMDB tab:||not stated|
|Table:||L Log table, L Person table|
|Program:||Med and CC|
Unique random number id per patient that combines the D_IDs across admissions/encounters.
Legacy implementation right in the table
As of 2019-02-06, Person_ID doesn't show in any form in CFE.
Consistency of Person_ID over time
If a record in L Person table were ever deleted and recreated it would never receive the same Person_ID next time around. However, a new, re-generated Person ID would still link all records for that patient. See Generate Person IDs#Algorithm summary for details.
Implication for data we have provided
Main office discussed that the Person ID might change over time if a PHIN changes as per PHIN_field#Multiple_PHINs_or_PHIN_changes_over_time. Julie is aware of this and will include this in any considerations about ongoing data she provides.
