  1. Double Click to Edit Note Section

    Please make it so that I can "double-click" on any part of the section to open it up and go directly to Edit.

  2. Include Chief Complaint when copying the SOAP note

    When copying a chart note, it does not currently include the Chief Complaint. It would be helpful to include this information instead of having to manually do this.

  3. Attach documents to chart notes

    Can you or could you record heart sounds and save as MP3 into the assessment SOAP note or some other part of the patient record?

  4. Full Screen Charting Mode

    I counted over 60 scrolls needed to write one SOAP note with 2 prescriptions. Ideally, there is a way to enter full screen mode to remove the navigation on the left, the patient header from the top, and the ad from the right to give us more workable space.

  5. Decrease the header size of the printed note

    The header is 25% of the page now. And I cannot decrease the font size to get the whole note on a single page for a simple op note.

  7. Keep note writing screen open when changing windows

    Currently, when I am writing a note, if I have to go to the Summary page or Tasks or Schedule, when I return to the note, I have to reopen the note writing screen (click Edit for Subjective, Objective, etc.).

    Can this note writing screen just be left open where it was, so I can quickly refill a med or schedule someone or reply to a task and not have to reopen it every time?

  8. Edit any part of your documentation without leaving your SOAP note

    You should be able to edit anything without exiting the SOAP note. Currently only SOAP components may be edited. For the rest you have to exit your note (e.g. past medical history, etc). This is distracting and slows you down.

  9. Exclude Empy Chart Note Sections when Printing

    We would like to have the option to simply not print sections of the Chart Note that are empty. Right now, the printout says "not entered" for empty sections, but we'd rather that you just don't print that section on the page at all.

    As it is now, it looks like we missed something, but the fact is we don't need to do those sections.

  11. Clearer Styling on Encounter Note Headers

    When you look at the encounter form, there are colored headers (shades of blue) that designate different areas of the note. I think since the actual meat of the note is the SOAP part, this should be a color that is very easily seen. Like shaded in red, or shaded in green, whatever. So you quickly navigate through the less important aspects of the encounter note.

  12. Patient Signing of Chart Notes

    We would like to allow our patients to sign chart notes, as proof that the doctor visited the patient.

  13. Make Chart Note Types More Obvious

    When you record a follow-up message given to the patient it looks the same as other chart note types, making it difficult to review when you have to go back and look at the last patient visit.

    There should be a clear delineation to separate office visits from other chart note types.

  14. Broader Addendum Roles

    In creating an addendum, communication can only be listed as "doctor" or non-PA or non-NP choices. It might be beneficial to list as "provider" instead of "DOCTOR", since NPs and PAs typically add addendum as well. Without this, we are misrepresenting ourselves.

  15. Choose which sections of a Chart Note to Print

    We would like to be able to choose which sections of a Chart Note to print. For instance, remove quality of care/screening info/from printable encounter.

    This way the printable note is simple and to the point and saves paper as well.

  16. Track User Actions more Granularly in Charting

    It is very important to be able to see who did what in a patient's chart. For example, if I recorded a patient's vital signs in a SOAP Note then that chart should show me as the person who took/recorded those vital signs.

    As it stands, the current Activity Feed and Audit Report (AFAR) only reports very minimal information regarding a chart while the SOAP Note (Encounter) makes it seem like the Dr is doing everything in a patient encounter with its "Seen by" option. It is of great importance to have this feature be part of the SOAP Note…

  17. In "Previous Encounters", list chief complaint

    When editing a SOAP note I click on "Previous Encounters" in the left window and all I see is a list of dates with "Office Visit: SOAP Note"
    It would be more useful if this displayed the Chief Complaint for the previous encounter instead

    Resolved  ·  Matthew Douglass responded

    I am happy to report that under “Previous Encounters”, we now display the date, encounter type, note type, and Chief Complaint.

    Please continue to let us know how we can make PF the best EHR for your practice.

  18. Delete/Modify Addenda

    We would like to be able to delete or modify addenda after they've been saved on signed notes.

  19. Maintain Place on Chart Note

    I transcribe notes and also act as receptionist. When in a note I quite often have to go to schedule. When going back to the note, I have to go in under date, then note, then subjective, plan, whatever, to find where I left off. Ideally, you would drop me exactly back in the place I was prior to navigating away from the note.

  20. Remove double space when adding lines

    When a line space is placed in a SOAP note, PF adds a double space. This makes the note cover multiple pages. Please allow us to customize this auto-creation of a double line space.
