The field Identifies As in the patient profile enables the user to select the patients preferred gender identity.
There are 7 enforced entries that come delivered with v17.1 and are found in the new Gender Identity Dictionary. The enforced entries cannot be modified, but they can be inactivated if needed. Users can add new entries to the dictionary and tie them to appropriate SNOMED codes.

Keep in mind that long display names will take up room on the patient banner so adding entries with shortened display names may be desired to keep the window easier to read.
