Name postion - "First Name", "Last Name"

Hi Everyone,
I am testing OpenEmr in a dental facility in Brazil, but we do NOT use the names, here, showing the options available: “Last Name”, “First Name”
Is it possible to change it to: “First Name”, “Last Name”
Best Regards,
Nielsen

Yes.
As admin. Administration/Layouts chose Demographics and edit.

@Nielsen,
We assume you are looking into Patient Finder screen which displays the name in the format “Lastname, Firstname” and you need to modify as “Firstname, Lastname”

For above scenario, tweak the line (approx:216) as below in the file : interface/main/finder/dynamic_finder_ajax.php

if ($colname == ‘name’) {
$name = $row[‘fname’];
if ($name && $row[‘lname’]) {
$name .= ', ';
}
if ($row[‘lname’]) {
$name .= $row[‘lname’];
}

Name Display Change in Calendar

You can use existing option available in Administration -> Globals - > Calendar -> Appointment Display Style

@visolveemr
In the Administration -> Globals - > Calendar -> Appointment Display Style - there’s no option for “First Name, Last Name”.

In Administration/lists -> Patient List Columns

@Nielsen,
Currently there is no option for “First Name, Last Name”. We can customize the code to make it happen.

Thanks,
