To display a patient's race, use the following tag:
A patient's race can be recorded using the OnBase HL7 module. To configure the HL7 module to record a patient's race, do the following:
- Assign the Patient Race Code chart data field to the appropriate HL7 field.
Configure one of the following HL7 message actions to process messages containing patient race information:
Medical Records Chart
Patient Record Processor
Ensure messages provide the race information in the HL7 field you mapped to the Patient Race Code chart data field. Values should be provided in one of the following formats:
Race Code^Race Description^HL7 Root
Race Code^Race Description
For example, if the import processor encounters this value for the patient race field, the patient's race will be displayed in the banner as ASIAN.
For more information about HL7 configuration, see the HL7 module reference guide or help files.
