Using OPID

OPID (Other Patient Identifier) is a field that can be used as a supplement to ID1 (which is usually a PID, hence OPID) or as the primary identifier for patients in LDMS.

To use an OPID for a participant, simply enter a value into the OPID column when entering or modifying that patient's information.


You can pre-populate the OPID in multiple rows by typing it into the OPID box above the patient grid before clicking the button. You can also do the same thing with the clinic.
