Add New Code Type


(Ben Ipinge) #1

Good day,

I would like to find out whether we can add a new code type for our country?

We use a localised code type which is similar ICD. How can we go about adding that to the system?

Regards,

hi @Benzo, try admin->lists->code types

I found that part, but you can only edit existing code types.

How do I add a new one?

Hi @Benzo ,

Lot of flexibility in doing this. Recommend checking out the following script to find out how code types are supported and then can figure out how to support yours:
openemr/code_types.inc.php at master · openemr/openemr · GitHub

Also rec checking out this in the wiki:
