18.8.119 PID - Patient Identification Segment (3.4.2)

The PID segment is used by all applications as the primary means of communicating patient identification information. This segment contains permanent patient identifying and demographic information that, for the most part, is not likely to change frequently.

It should be noted that from V2.4 onwards the demographics of animals can also be sent in the PID segment (see PID-35 to PID-38).

The assigning authority, the fourth component of the patient identifiers, is a HD data type that is uniquely associated with the assigning authority that originally assigned the number. A given institution, or group of intercommunicating institutions, should establish a list of assigning authorities that may be potential assignors of patient identification (and other important identification) numbers. The list will be one of the institution's master dictionary lists. Since third parties (other than the assignors of patient identification numbers) may send or receive HL7 messages containing patient identification numbers, the assigning authority in the patient identification numbers may not be the same as the sending and receiving systems identified in the MSH. The assigning authority must be unique across applications at a given site. This field is required in HL7 implementations that have more than a single Patient Administration application assigning such numbers. The assigning authority and identifier type codes are strongly recommended for all CX data types.

With HL7 V2.3, the nomenclature for the fourth component of the patient identifiers was changed from "assigning facility ID" to "assigning authority". While the identifier may be unique to a given healthcare facility (for example, a medical record assigned by facility A in Hospital XYZ), the identifier might also be assigned at a system level (for example a corporate person index or enterprise number spanning multiple facilities) or by a government entity, for example a nationally assigned unique individual identifier. While a facility is usually an assigning authority, not all assigning authorities are facilities. Therefore, the fourth component is referred to as an assigning authority, but retains backward compatibility using the construct of the HD data type (see the note in chapter 2). Additionally, CX data types support the use of assigning facility (HD) as the sixth component.

Attention: The PID-2 field was retained for backward compatibility only as of v2.3.1 and was withdrawn and removed from this message structure as of v2.7. It is recommended to use PID-3 - Patient Identifier List for all patient identifiers.

18.8.119.4 PID-3 Patient Identifier List (CX) 00106 (3.4.2.3)

Definition: This field contains the list of identifiers (one or more) used by the healthcare facility to uniquely identify a patient (e.g., medical record number, billing number, birth registry, national unique individual identifier, etc.). In Canada, the Canadian Provincial Healthcare Number should be sent in this field. The arbitrary term of "internal ID" has been removed from the name of this field for clarity.

18.8.119.5 PID-4 Alternate Patient ID - PID 00107 (3.4.2.4)

Attention: The PID-4 field was retained for backward compatibility only as of v2.3.1 and was withdrawn and removed from this message structure as of v2.7. It is recommended to use PID-3 - Patient Identifier List for all patient identifiers.

18.8.119.6 PID-5 Patient Name (XPN) 00108 (3.4.2.5)

Refer to User-defined Table 0445 - Identity Reliability Code in Chapter 2C, Code Tables, for suggested values.

18.8.119.34 PID-33 Last Update Date/Time (DTM) 01537 (3.4.2.33)

Definition: This field contains the last update date and time for the patient's/person's identifying and demographic data, as defined in the PID segment. Receiving systems will use this field to determine how to apply the transaction to their systems. If the receiving system (such as an enterprise master patient index) already has a record for the person with a later last update date/time, then the EMPI could decide not to apply the patient's/person's demographic and identifying data from this transaction.

18.8.119.35 PID-34 Last Update Facility (HD) 01538 (3.4.2.34)

Definition: This field identifies the facility of the last update to a patient's/person's identifying and demographic data, as defined in the PID segment. Receiving systems or users will use this field to determine how to apply the transaction to their systems. If the receiving system (such as a hospital's patient management system) already has a record for the patient/person, then it may decide to only update its data if the source is a "trusted" source. A hospital might consider other hospitals trusted sources, but not "trust" updates from non-acute care facilities. For example:

...|GOOD HEALTH Hospital|...

18.8.119.36 PID-35 Taxonomic Classification Code (CWE) 01539 (3.4.2.35)

Definition: A code representing the taxonomic classification (e.g. species and/or breed) of an organism. This may include the common or scientific name in the description component, based on the coding system(s) used. SNOMED-CT is the recommended coding system. If this field is not valued, a human is assumed. If the specificity of the coding system is insufficient to represent the organism to the degree desired, the most detailed coded value available may be used in this field and additional information sent in the text field, PID-37 Strain.

For example:

...|L-80700^Canine, NOS^SNM3|...

...|L-80100^Bovine^SNM3|...

...|L-80A00^Feline^SNM3|...

18.8.119.37 PID-36 Breed Code (CWE) 01540 (3.4.2.36)

Definition: From v 2.8 onward, this field has been retained for backward compatibility only. The specific breed of animal. This field, unlike Species and Strain is specific to animals and cannot be generally used for all living organisms. SNOMED is the recommended coding system. Refer to User-defined Table 0447 - Breed Code in Chapter 2C, Code Tables, for suggested values.

Conditionality Rule: This field must be valued if PID-37 - Strain is valued.

For example, (showing primary and alternative coding systems, using locally defined "American Kennel Club" nomenclature):

...|L-80733^ Staffordshire bull terrier^SNM3^^American Staffordshire Terrier^99AKC|...

...|L-80900^Weimaraner^SNM3|...

...|L-80439^Peruvian Paso Horse^SNM3|...

18.8.119.38 PID-37 Strain (ST) 01541 (3.4.2.37)

Definition: This field contains the specific strain of animal. It can also be expanded to include strain of any living organism and is not restricted to animals.

Example:

...|DeKalb|...

...|Balb/c|...

...|DXL|...

18.8.119.39 PID-38 Production Class Code (CWE) 01542 (3.4.2.38)

Definition: This field contains the code and/or text indicating the primary use for which the living subject was bred or grown. Refer to User-defined Table 0429 - Production Class Code in Chapter 2C, Code Tables, for suggested values. For example:

...|DA^Dairy^L|...

...|MT^Meat^L|...

...|RA^Racing^L|...

18.8.119.40 PID-39 Tribal Citizenship (CWE) 01840 (3.4.2.39)

This field contains the information related to a person's tribal citizenship. For tribal citizenship, in the United States, HL7 recommends using the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) Tribal Identity List. For a local definition, User-defined Table 0171 - Citizenship in Chapter 2C, Code Tables should be used.

This field repeats since persons can have tribal membership(s) and can be members of more than one tribe. The Name of Coding System component(s) of the CWE datatype should be used to identify the table from which tribal membership is drawn.

18.8.119.41 PID-40 Patient Telecommunication Information (XTN) 02289 (3.4.2.40)

Definition: This field contains the patient's personal telecommunication contact information. This field replaces PID-13 Phone Number - Home and PID-14 Phone Number Business with the intention that the components of the XTN data type be used to identify phone usage (Telecommunication use code) and type of equipment (telecommunication equipment type). Jointly, these components will describe the nature of the telecommunication data contained in this field and removes the sequenced-based assumptions in PID-13 and PID-14.
