Thanks for your ideas and comments on this one.

Basically, there is no such thing as a social security number in PNG. The government is currently trying to introduce a national ID card but is still some years away. Furthermore, peoples names can change from visit to visit (the concept of a fixed name is a very alien concept to many tribal folks around the world - not only PNG). The concept of uniquely ID'ing a patient easily is therefore a pre-req for any HIS in this part of the world.

If anyone on this forum has been faced with the same challenge we are open to ideas.

So why is something like Social Security Number not enough?
By the way, a party has a unique code assigned by the system for exactly
this purpose.
