To display the patient's age, use the following tag:

{{age}}

Age is calculated differently depending on whether a patient is living or deceased:

Patient Status

Basis for Age

Living

The {{age}} tag displays the patient's current age based on today's date and the patient's date of birth.

Deceased

The {{age}} tag displays the patient's age at the time of death, based on the patient's deceased date and date of birth.

If the deceased date is unknown, but the patient is marked as deceased via the patient death indicator, then the {{age}} tag displays a value of Unknown.

Ages are displayed in different formats depending on the age range of the patient. The following table describes the expected format based on age range.
