Transgender Patients CareWare to EMR

Emily Brown's picture

Hi! I'm looking for information about how folks in other cities are capturing data on new transgender patients in CareWare and in electronic medical record sysetms like EPIC and Cerner. Also, in EMRs, when a patient "comes out" as transgender how are poeople changing the gender entry in the system? Would love to know if anyone has insight on generally how to make EMRs and CW configurations more trans-friendly. We need lots of help. Thank you!

I can't speak to CAREWARE but our data system has birth gender, current legal gender (as designated on ID) and current gender (as designated by client). Current gender is where the client can designate transgender status.
