  1. Chart Note Faxing

    We should be able to fax notes directly from practice fusion, NOT as a referral, but to correspond with other doctors that may have referred the patient to us. Many doctors do not like receiving pages of information (demographics, insurance) that they already have. So, making a separate method that we can send JUST the note, and not as a referral, would be great.

  2. Attaching documents to referrals

    For referrals, it would be helpful to attach lab results and documents as well as the encounters.

  3. Re-send Referral Option

    I would like to see a "Resend" option added to referrals. It is too time consuming to recreate a referral and send it again.

  4. Tracking a patient's authorizations and referrals

    It would be very helpful if there was a section to track the patients' authorizations. For example, if a patient requires auth./referral the system should be able to keep count & send alerts when a patient only has ONE/NO authorization in file.

    Also there should be a section where we can add the patient's primary care physicians and referring doctors.

    If we do issue a referral, there should be a section where we keep track of where we refer our patients and who refer them to us.

  5. Referral Information for Patient

    We would like to have an option to give a referral letter to patient, in addition to the referral that is currently created for other physicians. The most important thing to add would be the doctor's address. Right know it's just phone, fax and email. If you allowed us to enter and save the specialist's address, it would be easier to give this to the patient as well.

  6. Track No Show or Canceled Referrals

    Under the referral section of the chart, we need to be able to note if the patient was a "no show" or "cancelled" their appointment with the specialist. We are finding that even though we do the referral, the patient is not actually going to see the specialist. Therefore, we can't "close the referral loop" & we can't delete the referral so it counts against us.

  7. Send Notes as Correspondence

    When we see a patient in the clinic we write a note and efax it to the referring physician or the PCP. Basically its a correspondence note, but it goes as a "Referral" that confuses the office that receives it. Please allow us a simple customization of the "type" of correspondence that we're sending so it's not always interpreted as a referral.

  8. Expand Referral Attachment Size beyond 500 KB

    We would like to be able to add attachments to referrals larger than 500KB. Most of our medical documents exceed that.

    Partially Resolved  ·  Aliza responded

    Hello everyone – we are excited to announce that as of 7/27/17 we have removed the file size restriction for attachments on electronic referrals. Electronic referrals consist of referrals sent through the Practice Fusion network (i.e. to another verified Practice Fusion provider) or via Direct Message (i.e. if the recipient uses a different EHR system).

    Please note that attachments for faxed referrals must still be 500KB or less, so if you are sending an electronic referral and wish to exceed that file size limit, make sure you un-check the “Send by Fax” box prior to sending.

  9. Customize Referrals

    As a specialist, I send many more "consultation reports" than "referrals." It would be nice if the referrals looked more like a letter as I used to send in the pre-digital age. Specifically, I just sent a consultation report to a referring physician that had my note and my digital signature separated by the patient's insurance information. My referring physician already had the patient's insurance information, so there should be a way to delete this. More customization options, please.

  10. Print Referring Provider Contact Information (including Phone Number) on Referral

    Sometimes when we send a referral, the medical office we are referring to does not call the patient. We advise the patient to call the office to set up the appointment. When we print the referral to give to the patient, we would like to have the contact info for the doctor somewhere on the page.

  11. Enhanced Search for physicians in referrals

    I would like to able to search the specialists in the practice fusion directory by geographic location and specialty.

  12. Send current note with referral

    It would be more helpful to attach the current note to a referral you start from that note. The way it works now, you have to sign the note, leave, and add the referral outside the note.

  13. Auto-Send Notes to Providers as CC after a note is signed

    It would be helpful for practice fusion to have the ability to send notes to the copied providers once the note is signed. Kind of like it sends emails to patients once the note is signed. We could use the directory and a box for cc's and then the provider in our office can choose the cc to send it to.

  14. Referral Authorization Linking

    When I complete a referral on an insurance website it comes with an authorization or certification number. It would be great to link directly to each insurance portal from the patient profile for referrals.

  15. Save Referral and Assign to someone else

    Can we save the referral we made even if we have not sent it? Sometimes we need to change the doctor and we have to make another referral, which makes it confusing.

  16. Automatic Referral follow-up note generator

    We would like to have an automatic generation of Referral follow up note intended for the PCP (hopefully, PCP name and fax information pre-populated from Patient intake form) so that PCP can get immediate information upon closing the chart. There can be an approve or deny radio button to make sure physician likes the wording.

  17. Electronically signing referrals

    Staff should be able to log in and do a referral and send it on behalf of the doctor. When a referral is automatic generated, the M.D should automatically have on the referral the options to choose the referring provider for electronically signed by the M.D who is referring so they know who is ordering the consultation, lab imaging order.

  18. Rich Text Formatting for Referrals

    We would like to have rich text formatting for referrals like we do for chart notes. This will help us be more professional in our communications.

  19. Include Referral History in the Continuity of Care and Patient Record Printout

    When the Continuity of Care document is processed or the entire patient chart printed, please also allow us to transmit or print all the patient referrals, along with doctor names and reasons.

  20. Referrals without full name and fax number.

    If I'm just recording that a referral occurred, I don't think I should have to add a name and fax number. For example, referring a patient to Alcoholics Anonymous wouldn't require a name or fax number.
