Transgender Patients- Add Birth Name Field from Demographics that would display next to legal name when Chart is opened
We have a large population of transgender patients and appreciate all the new menu options. In the Demographic section there will birth names, etc available in ver 13.5, request that these would display next to the legal name when the chart is opened and print on demographic reports- maybe in parenthesis. This is a very common request for trans patients.
We currently have planned to display aliases within the PM and EMR for better alignment of this request. This is planned for the end of the year.

If this request is possible, could the field also be used for adding a patient's preferred name while still allowing the record/claim to be billed out in the legal name? Or an additional field be added for the patient preferred name?
