    There should be an option to print current medications alone without historical medications.

    Hello everyone – As of 2/16/2017, we have introduced the ability to customize your printed medication lists. You can now save paper and select only the most relevant medication information for your patient care needs by printing a patient’s active, historical, or complete medication list from the chart Summary or encounter.

    You can read more about how to print customized medication lists here:

  2. I have entered an ICD-10 Diagnoses, however, on the summary and the encounter I am still seeing an ICD-9 code.

    The ICD 10 codes entered at 10/01/2015 in the diagnoses at the encounter and summary shows the ICD 9 with the code description. It suppose to appear with the ICD 10 instead of the ICD 9?

    Hi IT Girl,

    We are storing both ICD-9 and ICD-10 with each diagnoses. By default we are showing the ICD-9 code with the description to help with the transition. However, when looking at the summary screen you will see an option to change how you would like the diagnoses to be displayed. Next to the print icon you will see the word: Term. If you click that you will see the option to choose how you would like to see the Diagnoses displayed.

    By term displays the way that diagnoses have been displayed over the last several years, but the ICD-9 code, and the term or description that you chose when you added the diagnoses.

    By ICD-9 codes will display the ICD-9 code and description.

    By ICD-10 codes will display the ICD-10 codes and description.

    Changing this will affect the summary, encounter,…

  3. Auto-Save Chart Note on Auto-Lock

    I understand the security issue that mandates an auto lock out. It seems an "auto-save" feature would be helpful when the screen auto-locks so we don't forget to save each time.

    We are happy to report that as of Q4 2015, chart notes are auto-saving every minute, so this idea is Resolved.

    Thanks for your patience as we worked through the most stable way to accomplish this.

  4. Search Reminder/Tasks by Patient

    Would be useful to search reminder/tasks for patients to pull up all reminders on them to prevent duplicating reminders or to just see all reminders for a patient.

  5. Allow multiple facilities to register and transmit immunization files to the registry

    Currently, only the primary facility can transmit immunizations to their immunization registry. Immunization registries require that all locations submit their immunizations, differentiated by a location identifier. Each facility under Practice Fusion should be able to register and transmit immunization files to their chosen registry.

    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.

  7. Rich Text Formatting in Chart Note Templates

    It would be great to create Templates with the options of headers, Indent, Bold, Italic, Bullets and Numbers. This will make charting easier.

  8. American Sign Language as "Primary Language"

    The majority of my practice is working with the Deaf community. Currently there is no option for American Sign Language - or even an "other" category. Please add to the list of languages.

  9. Additional Encounter Types

    Most surgeons will see patients in multiple hospitals in the ER on the floor or in the Operating room. When need to have a way to capture and add the documentation to our EMR both for billing and for documentation purposes. Currently the encounter type is limited to office.

    Can you please provide additional encounter types: ER consultation, operating room procedure

  11. Make Document Preview Section Larger

    It is taking several steps to review a document because it appears with the details on one side and a very small document on the other.

    We have to close the detail screen using the x and then magnify the remaining image at least 2 times to be able to read.

    It would be better if the default was a larger image with the ability to open the details if needed( most of the time they are not.)

    Hello everyone – as of 6/1/2017, we have introduced an update to the document preview functionality: signed documents will now automatically preview in a full screen view when selected, with the option to click “Show Details” to view the document details window.

    Please note that pending (unsigned) documents will continue to show the details window when opened until the document has been signed.

  12. PT/INR Tracking for Coumadin Patients

    It would be great for offices that have large number of pts that are on Coumadin and come in regularly for INR check to have these numbers in the Vitals area for quick reference to view past numbers. Gerri

  13. Appointment Detail Report

    It would be great if we were able to generate a report that compiled a list of all patients that have been No Showed or Cancelled (or simply Seen) for a specified time frame. The report should include the patients last visit before the No Showed or Cancelled appointment and their phone numbers and emails. We should be able to print the report as well.

    Hi everyone – As of 1/24/2017, we have released the new Appointment Report to all practices. This report 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.

  14. Unify Navigation Across the Top

    Expand the top menu items to every screen. Example: on the Home screen menu buttons at the top are Dashboard, Documents,
    & Directory. Schedule screen has Schedule & Appointment requests. Task screen has only Task tab/button. Charts only has Patient List tab/button. Would be nice just to have these tabs/buttons across that row on each screen as a quick button to those sections of the EHR. Would save clicks and time from clicking on each screen to find the section you need followed by clicking on that tab itself. If I am in the task section, I have to click…

  15. Discontinue a Med --> Add an Allergy

    It was great with a single button in old chart to add an allergy while discontinuing a medication. Now I have to remember to stop it, and then go to the allergy section and add it, then come back and continue what I was doing with medications.

  18. Option to hide historical diagnoses in Superbill diagnosis selection

    We would like the option to hide historical diagnoses on the Superbill to eliminate potential errors/confusion. And or, find a way to highlight a Primary Diagnosis in both the chart and the Superbill.

    As of January 2016, the diagnosis selector in the superbill has been improved to better delineate the difference between Encounter Diagnoses, Active Diagnoses, and Historical Diagnoses. This should make it much easier to avoid potential errors and confusion.

  19. Collapse side bar in schedule view.

    The bar on the side that lists 'users, display options, appointment types' takes up too much space. There needs to be an arrow at the top you can click and collapse that option and make the schedule bigger.
