ARCHETYPE IDopenEHR-EHR-CLUSTER.person.v1
ConceptPerson
DescriptionAn individual human being.
UseUse to record details of a person as they are known or understood in the course of clinical documentation, often ad hoc or when it is not appropriate or possible to use a formal demographic register or index. Examples include: - the copyholder of an advanced care record, using the 'Copyholder' SLOT within the EVALUATION.advance_care_directive archetype; - the role and contact details of a named contact person within an organisation, using the 'Contact person' SLOT within the CLUSTER.organisation archetype; - details about a relative in a family history record, using the 'Family member details' SLOT within the openEHR-EHR-EVALUATION.family_history archetype; - the name of the person who collected a laboratory specimen from a patient, using the 'Specimen collector details' within the CLUSTER.specimen archetype; or - a witness to a fall or accident, using the 'Witness' SLOT within the CLUSTER.health_event archetype. In most simple clinical recording use cases, the unstructured 'Name' element within the CLUSTER.person archetype will be sufficient to record the name of a person as part of a health record. However, in circumstances where a structured name is necessary or desirable for clinical recording purposes, nest this archetype within the 'Structured name' SLOT in CLUSTER.person archetype. If the CLUSTER.structured_name archetype is nested within the 'Structured name' SLOT, any or all of the data elements can be combined together as a text string and represented in the 'Name' element, as long as they are consistent. This archetype could also be used as a proxy for formal demographic data when reviewing a template with domain experts - for example, an assessment where reviewers would expect to see a person's details at the top of the assessment form.
MisuseNot to be used to represent or replace formal identification management or for the purposes of maintaining an official demographic register or index. Use a formal Master Patient Index or Health Provider Index for this purpose, or archetypes based on the openEHR Demographic Information Model. Not to be used to represent the subject of care, participants or author of the record and similar data elements that should be represented formally in the health record using the Reference Model attributes. Not to be used to record the date of birth of an individual - use the 'Date of birth' data element within the EVALUATION.birth_summary for this purpose Not to be used to record biometric detail or biomarkers about an individual - use a specific ENTRY archetype for this purpose.
PurposeTo record details about a person as they are known or understood in the course of clinical documentation.
