Medical - Medical (general) / Electronic Patient Charts
English term or phrase: Patient demographics
Would it be "Dados do paciente" or there is a better equivalent in Brazilian Portuguese?

No context, just a list of terms that appear in an Electronic Patient Charts.

Portuguese translation:dados (demográficos) do paciente
Explanation:
If you want to keep the translation short, like the original, I think your suggestion is the best. You could include the word "demográficos" as suggested above.

I would guess the original means patient details that can be used to place the patient into demographic groups for statistical purposes.
