  1. Allow us to edit the types of "Appointment Type" categories

    Allow providers to create their own "Appointment Type" drop-down categories rather than limiting us to the 7 options currently available.

  2. Alerts regarding patient on scheduler or intake

    have a field that office can input patient specific alerts pertaining to Billing (like balance due or account in collections) or Appointment Scheduling (like patient discharged, do not schedule) etc.
    This would be incredibly helpful to scheduling staff to have alert box pop up that indicates this type of information. This way, staff can address when client is on the phone setting up an appointment.
    Thank you

    You asked and we listened: Use Pinned notes to manage non-clinical reminders
    Practice Fusion continues to take major steps toward updating your EHR with even more features and enhanced workflows. With Practice Fusion’s Pinned Note feature, we have made it easier for practice staff to quickly view pertinent custom details about patients before they are scheduled, before check in, or during a patient visit. A Pinned Note is the ideal place to record non-clinical information specific to an individual patient, where you can have important information readily available. Thanks you to everyone who voted and helped make the Practice Fusion EHR better for everyone. https://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/knowledgebase/articles/1845769

  3. Change SOAP note type to "No Show" if patient cancels or no-shows

    Currently, when a patient is a no show or has cancelled their appt, we can see this under the Appointment tab.
    However, when the appt is generated, it creates an encounter. As the appt is no longer valid, the dr still has to go in and sign off on this to take it out of their task list.
    Because we track these no-shows and cancellations, we do not delete them. I would like the option under the encounter to list the "Encounter Type" as a No-Show or Cancellation. (Currently I use "Letter" and put information on the no-show of cancellation…

    Hi everyone – As of 1/19/2017, we have introduced a new schedule setting to all practices that allows administrators to determine if encounters will be auto-generated for appointments marked as cancelled or no-show.

    You can read more about schedule settings here: http://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/knowledgebase/articles/482832

    We have also introduced a new Appointment Report that allows practices to review and filter appointments by facility, status, provider, and date, making it easier to track cancellations, no shows, and other scheduling details.

    You can read more about the new Appointment Report here:

  4. Patient Preferred Pharmacy

    I would like to be able to add and update pharmacies for patients. At this time the doctor is having to do this when sending meds, it would be a great help to the doctor if the staff were able to manage the pharmacy during the intake process or prior to the doctor seeing the patient.

  5. Delegating e-prescribing ability to practice staff

    Staff, other than prescribers (i.e. MAs and nurses) need to be able to send e-prescriptions in the physician's name.

  6. Delete custom document types

    I need a way to delete the custom document types. I really like the feature of being able to make our own custom labels, but when a label gets entered by mistake, or spelled incorrectly, there needs to be the option to delete it.

  7. Hide Inactive Users

    I have had people leave the practice, I have students going through and each time I have to allow them access to PF.
    Now, my list of inactive is so long, when I go to look for an active user I have to go through this long list. I understand that I can't eliminate them since they have signed things that are permanent records but would like to 'hide' them so they aren't on the list all the time, like when I go to schedule screen. I know how to inactivate them from the tutorial.

  9. Compact Schedule Printing

    The new update has changed the schedule view to be much longer, wasting lots of space and making it hard to see the entire schedule. The printed schedule is now 3 pages long as well, which wastes space and paper. We utilize the printed schedule everyday, and the small compacted 1 page schedule was what we worked with.

  10. Ideas to improve the Medication List

    The medication list is the life blood of my practice. I see you have disabled the list. While I am in the chart note, or any part of the chart for that matter, I would like to drop down the medication list like a shade from the top of the page. It should be a full screen list all the way across. It should include all medications with dates updated and prescribed. I want to have better tracking of medications, which ones were tried, why they didn't work, why they were discontinued, etc. I know the information is available, but…

  11. When creating an Encounter, warn if Encounter already exists for that day

    If one clicks the orange "New Encounter" button on a day where an encounter has already been generated, a window should pop up notifying the user that a second encounter is about to be generated! This would be helpful in that it would allow the user to avoid creating duplicate encounters. Options on this prompt could include "make a new encounter anyway," "do not make a new encounter," or "take me to the latest existing encounter."

    As of 8/11/2015, we have deployed ICD-10 coding for Practice Fusion superbills in all PF practices to make sure you are prepared for the October 2015 CMS ICD-10 deadline.

    We have also incorporated ICD-10 diagnosis coding directly in the clinical and lab ordering workflows.

    To learn more, you can visit our ICD-10 Center here: http://www.practicefusion.com/icd-10/

    Additionally, there are 3 helpful knowledge base articles available:

  15. View Total Number of Active Patients

    You used to have an easy way for me to see the total number of active patients in my practice. I would like to have that feature back. The current way of going to reports and selecting age >0 and having to export to an excel sheet to get the number is too time consuming.

    I am happy to report that you can review the number of active patients in your Practice Fusion account via the ‘Patient Import’ tile on your Practice Dashboard.

  16. Track copay information per appointment

    Copays come directly from the patient at the time of visit. . It would be helpful if when opening a patient chart, I can document the payment, and/or I can see if the patient paid for his/her copay at their last visit. Plus if paid by credit card, medical debit card, or check and give the patient a receipt printed.

    Patients are not able to send documents via the messaging system. This would be great if they can send old charts, results they have, etc.

    Hi everyone – As of 11/17/17, patients are able to attach files and hyperlinks to messages that they send to their provider from within the patient portal. When received in the EHR, these files and hyperlinks can be saved as documents to attach to the patient chart.

    For more information on handling patient message attachments, please see our Knowledge Base article here:

  18. We need the ability to enter more than one blood pressure

    Often, more than one blood pressure reading is taken during a visit. For example, if a patient needs to be assessed for dehydration, or if the BP is very high. There needs to be a way to enter more than one BP reading, including whether it was taken standing, sitting, or lying, and in which arm.

  19. Enable Appointment Reminders from Scheduler

    Currently, to change (or check) whether a patient gets appointment reminders, one has to open the chart, go to profile, and scroll down. If, when we were scheduling the patient, or on the appointment display, we could click the checkbox to allow appointment reminders, that would help immensely, and be of use when scheduling follow-ups. We could confirm with the patient - as they are scheduling - whether they want to receive reminders.
