  1. Automatic Refresh of EHR Data

    We are always running into problems with staff not remembering to constantly hit refresh. Why is that manual? Can the system "refresh" it self? say every 5 minutes or so?

    • Medical Dictionary for Spell and Grammar Checks

      We would like to have Practice Fusion utilize a medical dictionary for the spellcheck, rather than just utilizing the basic spellchecker that comes with web browsers.

        • Darker Fonts

          I am having a difficult time seeing some of the text in the EHR. Can you make it darker?

          • Read-only access during system updates

            It makes me anxious as a provider to have no access to health records during system updates. In a crisis, access to patient data can make a life-or-death difference. Is it possible to at least have read-only access to patient charts during system updates?

              This concept is being discussed by the product team and we’re investigating ways on how we might be able to make this happen.

              In the meantime, we are working hard at minimizing the numbers of releases that require system maintenance periods, and this year nearly half of our releases have been “up-time.” You can expect to see more up-time releases in the coming year.

              • Native Android EHR App

                78% of the mobile devices on the market are Android devices.
                It only goes to extrapolate that 78% of physicians using mobile devices are using Android.

                When will we be able to use Practice Fusion on an Android device?

                iphone OS represents only 18% of the market (the remainder being the windows OS), so I would think that Android would have been the logical first step.

                  Hi everyone. We released a beta version of a native Android EHR app in 2015. Due to very few downloads and utilization, we have decided to discontinue it and remove it from the app store.

                    Update: As of November 2017, Practice Fusion EHR (Versions 3.6 and 3.7) has achieved PCMH Prevalidation from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for NCQA’s PCMH 2017 Program.

                  • Making Practice Fusion Stylus-compatible

                    Stylus pens with various apps have writing to text translation features but the various websites EMR need to be compatible with it. It would be so nice for us who love to write our notes and for patients (some how there is something more personal about writing with a patient present) if we could "write" with the stylus in our chart notes and allow the various technology already created to translate it to text.

                      It would be helpful for us to have voice-activated typing to speed up typing in the EHR.

                      • Utilize keystrokes instead of mouse clicks

                        Many places in the New EHR require mouse clicks rather than a Return or Enter keystroke. One example is in the Name Search field; a name is typed in and then the magnifying glass must be clicked with the cursor/mouse rather than just hitting the Enter or Return key.

                        Wherever this could be eliminated would be a positive change.

                        • Modify or delete errant information

                          I have had rare occasion where information was added to the wrong chart, either a diagnosis, prescription, or an entire note. Now it remains on the patient's record forever. For legal reasons, I know we cannot alter a record, but it would be nice if that errant information could be moved out of the existing information so that errors do not occur in reproducing this information. For example, if you print a med list or print a chart, that information goes with it and an addendum at the bottom my not be enough to prevent a consultant or other provider…

                          • Phone Number Format Consistency (xxx) xxx-xxxx

                            I was wondering if it would be possible to have the phone numbers typed in automatically change to the format of (xxx) xxx-xxxx? I noticed that this automatic change occurs when typing in number for the "Next of Kin" in charting, but not in other phone number fill-ins. If it's not possible due accommodations for other phone number formats, I understand. Thank you!

                            • Date Entry Consistency

                              When entering dates, some fields require slashes to be entered. Others require 4 digit years. And different ones let you pick from a date picker while others don't. Can you please make this perfectly consistent throughout the EHR?

                                I am a doctor working both in Florida and Ontario (Canada). I travel between both homes. I want to use Practice Fusion only, especially because I have phone consults with patients and can be anywhere in the world when I do. Can you support use outside of the U.S. or at least to Canadian Doctors? I frequently run into support issues when I'm in Canada because I am constantly told you do not support me meanwhile when I'm in florida you support me. So - how can we transform this? PF should be available world wide in my opinion, you…

                                • TouchID Fingerprint Password for Native iOS

                                  Would you ever consider enabling a fingerprint password option for iPads and iPhones users? Though we understand the need to lock Practice Fusion every so often to avoid security and HIPAA breaches, it is a hassle to retype a full password every time the system kicks us out.

                                    Hi Maddy—once we release our native iOS applications, we’ll consider adding this convenience feature as well. Stay tuned!

                                  • In-Office Device Integration

                                    I have several machines that I do testing on in my office and it takes hours to get them all uploaded at the end of the day. This would be very beneficial to all practices if the devices could connect directly to PF to transmit data.

                                    • Option to Display Patients as: Last Name, First Name

                                      We would like the option to display patients as Last Name, First Name throughout the EHR

                                      • Scheduled EHR Maintenance on Weekends

                                        It would be very helpful to have the EMR Maintenance occur on the weekends. I'm sure there are a lot of us who have to work from home after clinic hours.

                                          Hi everyone,

                                          This is a great time to provide you all with an update of the progress we’ve made toward our longterm goal of never having to take the EHR offline for planned hardware or software upgrades.

                                          In 2013, we had 50 scheduled downtime windows to upgrade the system.

                                          In 2014, we had 22.

                                          In 2015, we had 11.

                                          In 2016, 4 months into the year, we have only had 1 downtime release.

                                          That is the lowest number of planned downtime releases of any EHR on the market.

                                          We appreciate your patience as we work diligently toward zero.
