  1. Difficulty seeing Signed Chart Note Color

    The Signed chart note color is difficult for us to see in the New EHR. Can you explore making it more legible?

  2. Group Notes

    We run behavioral health groups and need to manage patient rosters and accompanying group notes that repeat some information for each clients entry. Is there a way to manage groups of clients at the same time. To have entries go into several charts by typing it once.

  3. Chart Note Macros

    We would like to be able to define a short abbreviation (usually with a special character so it cannot be accidentally typed) that expands to whatever text you want. It is found in some EHRs, a stand-alone program called AsUType, and WordPerfect.

    For instance: type a '.' (period), followed by "otc" and a space, and it automatically becomes "over the counter"

    Hi everyone—I am pleased to announce that we have released this time-saving feature to all Practice Fusion customers as of 8/4/2015.

    You can read more about how Template Settings for creating macros works here: http://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/knowledgebase/articles/484527-how-do-i-create-new-templates-and-edit-existing-te

    And information on using macros in a chart note here: http://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/knowledgebase/articles/483339-charting-with-templates

  4. Check All routinely done items in a chart note

    Please let us have a "check all" feature for routinely done diet, exercise, weight loss, pap smear, mammogram, recommendation for colonoscopy, bone density scans, etc. Clicking them individually instead of check box takes more time to document than needed.

  5. Shortcuts for Chart Note Navigation

    In a chart note, "Go To" triggers a 17 item list. It would be great if somehow we could type "+ N" and it goes directly to the note? Or some keyboard indication like this. Same thing for the other sections of the Go To list.

    This would be especially helpful on mobile devices and certain screens, since the scrolling gets cumbersome and slows everything down.

  6. Sign Chart Note from Preview

    We would like to sign chart notes from the Preview Section, rather than having to "Open the Encounter" and then sign it.

  7. Remove "Encounter" from top of Printed Chart Notes

    Please delete the redundancy of the word "Encounter" at the top of printed chart notes.

  8. Formatting of Chart Note Headers

    SOAP headers need to be a different color from the rest of the headers. It's difficult trying to find the title "Subjective" "Objective" " Assessment" and "Plan" since everything is scattered and written in blue.

  9. Make Clinical Decision Support Notifications Responsive to Data Entry

    The yellow clinical support reminders should automatically disappear once the depression or asthma or meds have all been put in as reminded.

  10. Simpler Copying of Chart Note Text

    Currently, we have to press control-c after saying that we want to copy the note. Can you auto-copy the chart note to the computer's clipboard rather than forcing us to press control-c?

  11. Move the "Go To..." and "Back" buttons on soap notes to the top of the Templates box

    Moving these buttons to the top would be more efficient for mouse clicking.

  12. Link Insurance to Chart Note

    It would be convenient to look at an encounter note and be able to see what insurance was used for that visit. This is particularly important for workers' comp claims.

  13. More space when printing chart notes

    We would like to be able to again put spaces between categories in the soap encounter note. ie: spaces between HPI, PMH, social history etc. This will make it easier to read.

  15. Chart Note Report Date Range

    When searching for chart notes in the Chart Note Report, when you search for 5/20/2015 - 5/20/2015, no notes come up. But searching 5/19/2015 - 5/21/2015 does return chart notes for 5/20/2015. It seems like this search needs to be inclusive of the day range, rather than exclusive. Also, there might be a time zone issue going on here.

  16. Line Break Settings for Chart Notes

    I've noticed with the new rich text formatting on the chart notes that pressing enter does a "paragraph break" instead of a line break. I understand I can do a line break by pressing shift + enter, but this is cumbersome in the course of charting. Is there a way to default to which type of line break occurs when I press enter? I print my chart notes, and now they are coming out to two pages instead of one, because everything is so spread out.

  17. New list item "Provider" in Addendum Pull-down Menu

    When adding an addendum to a note, the only options are for "Doctor" "Patient" "Referral" or "Other". Many of us using Practice Fusion are not Doctors. Why not use the more generic "Provider" to be more accurate and avoid confusion. It is not okay to have to choose "Other" as the provider.

  18. Date, Patient Name, and DOB in Footer of Chart Note Printout

    Date, patient name and DOB should be in footer not header where they are hidden by metal clasp if placed in a chart.

  19. "Go To" action dropdown to specific Note section

    I'd like the ability to "Go To" specifically, the Subjective, Objective, Assessment, or Plan section of the Note, not just the Note itself.

    Let's make it just a bit more specific. Thanks!
