We are currently updating the OP Help Center content for the release of OP 14.19 or OP 19. OP 19 is a member of the certified OP 14 family of products (official version is 14.19.1), which you may see in your software (such as in Help > About) and in the Help Center tabs labeled 14.19. You may also notice that the version number in content and videos may not match the version of your software, and some procedural content may not match the workflow in your software. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we make these enhancements.

Specify a Patient's Ethnicity Details

A patient's ethnicity details, when provided, should be recorded in the Basic Information (Demographics) of their patient chart. The details provided here are intended to provide details of a patient's Hispanic origin. This is not a mandatory field.

This a type-ahead pick-from list, allowing users to select more than one detail.

Entering Ethnicity Details

  2. In the Ethnicity Details field, begin to type the origin detail(s). As you type, results will display.

  1. Select the appropriate detail(s). As details are selected, the Ethnicity field updates to Hispanic or Latino.
Note: If you do not collect detailed ethnicity information, proceed to Step 5 to select the ethnicity of the patient.
  1. If an incorrect selection was made, click the respective X to remove the detail. If all details are removed, the Ethnicity field resets to Unknown.
  2. In the Ethnicity field, edit the selection, if needed. Selecting an option other than Hispanic or Latino does not clear the ethnicity details, but they can be deleted by clicking the respective X.
