The first step I’d like to take in making patient search analyzers configurable is to make it very easy, if not the default, to flatten accents in search – i.e. to make it so a search for “Jose” will bring up “José”.
Should patient search ignore accents by default?
Note that this would use ASCIIFoldingFilter – please review the filter’s description before voting. Note that it only folds character blocks that have “reasonable ASCII mappings” – i.e., it leaves Arabic, Hindi, etc. characters alone.
- Ignore accents by default
- Accent-sensitive search by default
