In some circumstances, there can be a need to register a patient anonymously i.e without providing the required demographic data about them, the reason could be because the patient was brought into the clinic while they were unconscious. This feature has been implemented in PIH's Mirebalais implementation, but it is not configured correctly to work out of the box in the OpenMRS Reference Application.

The goals of this project are (1) to make this feature work out of the box in the Reference Application, and (2) to bring parts of the code that supports this feature into the core OpenMRS platform.

Note: Currently the feature to register an anonymous patient is turned on by default in the reference application (see resources section for pointers on this). However this path is broken and hence one cannot complete the workflow to register an unidentified patient. You can try this at
