Starting with Version 2.6, you can use a preferred name and/or prefix for a patient. Some examples are as follows:

"Billy" William Affleck
"Pastor" James Longan
"Dr. Sammy" Samuel Chow

The preferred name and/or prefix are enclosed in quotation marks and displayed everywhere in the system. The only place where they are not used is CMS1500 because legal names are required.
