I have added a second patient identifier that make sense to me, and I noticed that openmrs has integrated it as part of the search fields.
Now I want this second patient identifier as part of the search patient table columns, I can only see the OpenMRS ID. Any help will be appreciated.
Do you intend to add a second patient identifier column in the existing database for your obs to be saved. We only capture Patient ids as an obs FYI , i dont think its necessary to include a column in the database for your seconds patient identifier
When I use a patient name, I can see a patient name column in the search results table. If I use an openMRS ID I have also a OpenMRS ID column in the results table. Now I can see the patient if I search with my second patient ID but the column is not in the results table. If you are using a national database where thousands have the same name this second patient ID is a real shortcut to find your patient. In my previous post I was looking a way to have this second patient ID in the patient dashboard and I can now see it there. My concern is to have it in the search results table if I am able to find the patient when I enter this second patient ID in the search field. I am now aware that we can do a lot with openmrs even if sometimes there is a lot of back and forth before reaching the resolution. I will reach the resolution for sure
this implies you simply want two identifiers to be displayed in the search results,since we arleady have one,is that right?
Most of us have previously an emr where we enter a local patient identifier. Now we have switched to openMRS and I am really happy openMRS provided a way to add additional patient identifiers.
I can search a patient using that local identifier so I want it also in the search results table even if the openMRS ID is already there . My search is based on my local patient identifier
@jamani it would be great to share how you finally solved it.
I have just checked it as required in the configuration page
