The menu "Person"


This item will load a basic details entry screen, into which the entry of Last name and First name(s) and Gender are required. Also desirable are

  • date of birth (which escaped being required, for purposes which included staff confidentiality as any users must co-exist in the database as a Person)
    • default is to show the current date
    • format is as defined by your (individual, if configured) computer account settings
  • address
    • GNUmed supports the re-use and adaptation of existing addresses
  • phone
    • an entry here will be treated as a home telephone number
  • occupation
    • this is the one value that has health relevance and for this reason, if it would need to be edited after the person was created, this can be done in the menu EMR > Add / Edit … > Occupation.

Other non-health person details can be added (or edited) via tabs within the Demographics plugin, provided this plugin has been loaded into the current workplace. Shortcuts to this plugin are offered through the menu commands
  • GNUmed > Go to plugin > Demographics
  • Person > Edit
