  1. Improving entry of Screening / Intervention / Assessment

    It would be great if every time we added a screening/intervention/assessment, we did not have to scroll back up to add another. Every time one is added, the screen scrolls down.

      Great news! We have updated the Screenings/Interventions/Assessments section of the encounter so that the note will retain its place when an item is added and unnecessary scrolling will no longer be required.

      Thanks for providing all of your requests for this feature – we’re delighted to release it!

    • Specifying Inclusive Gender Options for Patients

      I'd like to see more options for gender at birth, current gender identification, sexual orientation, and a place to indicate preferred pronoun.

        Hello everyone – great news! You now have the ability to specify gender at birth in the patient Profile as well as gender identity and sexual orientation on the patient Summary page.

        Thank you for your patience as we worked to get this implemented!

      • Optimize clicking in Superbill

        When generating a superbill I must select myself via drop down menu as a rendering provider then select location of service for every patient encounter even though I'm signed on at that computer all day. If I signed on once and the system afterward would default to me and my location then it would save me close to 100 clicks per clinic day.

        All those clicks add up. I once counted around fifty clicks to generate one progress note and bill. Multiply that by say 20 patients and you've performed 1000 mouse clicks that day.

          As of Q4 2015, rendering provider and service location will default to the provider and facility assigned to the chart note that is associated with that superbill.

          If you are a legacy user of the Practice Fusion/Kareo interface, we specially enabled this functionality to mirror your previous workflow. When you see two lists in your dropdown, please select the from the Billing system list.

          There is more information about this Kareo quirk at this Knowledge Base article: http://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/knowledgebase/articles/483019-how-do-i-create-superbill-when-i-am-bound-with-kar

        • Formatting Chart Notes

          Please add more formatting options to chart notes. Things like bullets, bolding, underlining, color, etc. would be extremely helpful.

          • Prior Authorization for Prescriptions

            Recently saw a demo for CompletEPA (surescripts) for medication prior authorizations. Because it is real-time and integrates into existing EHRs, I think it will significantly reduce the amount of time that my staff and I spend on medication PAs, and it will improve patient care, compliance, and satisfaction. Would love to have the ability to add this service (or a comparable one) to Practice Fusion.

            • Allow lab and imaging orders to be created directly from a SOAP note/visit encounter

              When patients come in for their visits, we will often make a plan for them that includes imaging, lab or even referrals. Unfortunately there is no way to do this directly from the encounter for that visit, nor is it recorded in that encounter. We can order medications during a specific encounter and it's recorded as having been done then, we should also be able to order lab and imaging.
              If a patient comes in with an ankle injury and I order an xray for it, I have to document it in my plan by writing "will order xray" and…

                • Sort Frequent Diagnosis Codes Differently

                  When searching for a frequent dx code I have to scroll through every one because it is currently sorting by the code rather than the descriptor. I would like this to be alphabetical. It serves no use currently as it takes less time to search for it in the search box than scroll down through the list.

                  • Customize Providers for Scheduling Dropdown

                    When scheduling a patient, all PF users are listed as "providers" in the dropdown list. I have only one billing provider, the other users are support staff and do not require schedules for the office. If I could customize the list of providers that are in the dropdown when scheduling appointments, it would save two clicks.

                      There is a somewhat limited selection of environmental allergies. It would be nice to have a free text selection for the allergies. Ex: unable to add allergy for shampoo due to missing selection in pull down list.

                          Hi everyone – As of 1/24/2017, we have released a new Appointment Report to all of our practices. This report allows practices to review and filter appointments by facility, status, provider, and date. Once the report is run, practices can also view the list of appointments based on Appointment Type, e.g. “New Patient”. This report can also be printed.

                          For detailed information, you can read more about the new Appointment Report here:

                              Can you remove the automatic periods that appear at the end of each template item? The concept of a template is to create a macro that can be customized to each user's preference. If you could make them user-customizable, that would be best.

                                  Please allow us to print eRX receipts in the new EHR. We practice in assisted living facilities (ALFs). We ePrescribe via PF eRX to the institutional pharmacies that service the ALFs. The ALFs themselves need a copy of the RX. The eRX receipt with VOID watermarked across in the old EHR was superb for this.

                                      Hello Edgar,

                                      The uric acid test in serum should now be visible to be added to your flowsheets.

                                      It would be great to delete or alter lab order or imaging order templates once made.

                                        As of tonight’s release, we now offer support for editing and deleting lab and imaging order templates. Keep in mind that templates are lab/imaging center specific, and can be shared with your entire practice. Select the pencil icon next to your templates to use the new edit and delete functionality.

                                      • Indicate a template line has been used

                                        I would like the EHR to indicate when you use a line in a template. i.e. it would change color (lighten) to reflect that you already chose that line. When you have a robust template, it is hard see where you last clicked, since you don't always choose all of them.

                                          Associating diagnosis codes to a specific date of service went from selecting bullets (in the old EHR) to individually adding each and every diagnosis (in the new EHR). Please bring back the bullets for diagnoses.

                                            The PF EHR now allows you to select “Add All” diagnoses when charting. This functionality now requires fewer clicks than the previous version of the EHR.

                                            As always, thank you for submitting your ideas for improving the PF EHR.
