Biological sex of the patient at birth; options are "male" and "female".
Sex changes over time
For those patients who are transgender or transsexual, document what their sex was at birth. This may mean that a record's FirstName field becomes inconsistent with their Sex field. In those cases, the contents of the Alias_ID_collection might shed lights on the reason.
EPR uses the currently used gender, as far as we could tell. We didn’t review what the policies are about this. Our records may therefore be inconsistent with EPR.
