Is the patient ‘Date of Birth’ field mandatory?


When creating a new Patient record, entering the Patient's Date of Birth can be made mandatory.

The Date of Birth sets the age of the patient, which is used to determine what chart should be used by default (Adult, Deciduous or Mixed). It can also be used for queries (eg to find patients aged 18-25)

If using eAppointments or eForms, the Date of Birth is used to verify the patient.
