Maria,it was Cédrics question and I tried to give a reasonable answer.Maybe you never read the whole mail I wrote.Your point is right too and might it only because someone lost his social card from the last visit.

But why would a patient want to prevent you to find its medical records?
I think that what Robert was explaining about PNG is that due to cultural issues, people can change their name, and since there is no ID issued buy the goverment, this can lead to duplicate patients in GNU Health...There might be several reasons. Usually a patient goes to a clinic to get one of these services (the list might be not complete):1) Medical verification2) Medical treatment3) Medication4) Paying5) Claiming Government Support for payment6) Claiming Insurance Support for PaymentHere are now a few examples where the patient might like to hide his known identity:1) Getting another verification (by another doctor perhaps) because he never is satisfied with the existing ones.2) Getting more Medication than he needs, for selling or "helping" someone without required consultation3) Getting a clean patient record concerning any invoicesUsually any way where is seen a real or supposed option to get something desired is used.It would be naive to think that self produced social numbers without further identification really point to the right person and that they do it only once.Therefore the usage of biometrics perhaps never allows to get the real data of a person but it grants that you always talk to the expected person.Best Regards,David--
