Patient Template

The patient template allows you to define how a patient should be represented in the system. The patient template is very important as it defines the observations (e.g., biomarker measurements) available for the patient. The BioT platform allows the assignment of multiple observations to a single patient. These observations may be received from several different devices or entered manually by a physician.

The Patient template is comprised of the following major parts:

  1. General fields – Allow you to define the patient attributes.
  2. Observation fields – Allow you to define the type of observations the system should keep for a patient.

Both template parts are fully customizable, allow you to add attributes as well as observations, and adhere to the no-code approach as any other template.

For additional information on the different field types, see Attribute Types.
