ANON Anonymous identifierAn identifier for a living subject whose real identity is protected or suppressedAJustification: For public health reporting purposes, anonymous identifiers are occasionally used for protecting patient identity in reporting certain results.

Anonymous identifiers can be used in PID 3 by replacing the medical record number or other non-anonymous identifier. The assigning authority for an anonymous identifier would be the state/local health department.An identifier for a living subject whose real identity is protected or suppressed Justification: For public health reporting purposes, anonymous identifiers are occasionally used for protecting patient identity in reporting certain results.

DEA Drug Enforcement Administration registration numberAn identifier for an individual or organization relative to controlled substance regulation and transactions.AUse case: This is a registration number that identifies an individual or organization relative to controlled substance regulation and transactions.
