  1. Document Type Filter in Patient Documents List

    It would save time if we could categorize patients' documents by document type within the patients charts.

  2. Formatting of Chart Note Headers

    SOAP headers need to be a different color from the rest of the headers. It's difficult trying to find the title "Subjective" "Objective" " Assessment" and "Plan" since everything is scattered and written in blue.

  3. Attach documents to chart notes

    Can you or could you record heart sounds and save as MP3 into the assessment SOAP note or some other part of the patient record?

  6. Specify ordering provider in lab ordering

    We're starting to really work on possibly making the transition to electronic ordering for lab, since labcorp is going to make that possible soon. There are a couple of things I noticed are missing from the webinar and the tutorial video.

    Because there's no longer a forums, this isn't an ideal place to ask these questions or present these issues, but short of opening a ticket, I'm not sure how else to present them.
    1--We often order follow up labs months in advance. How does one order labs to be done 3 months from now? That wasn't reviewed in either…

  7. New Time Filter in Tasks: 30 days

    For incomplete tasks, add a '30 days' option - currently '7 days' and 'all time' are available, but we would like an additional "Next 30 days" filter.

  8. Move Notes section to top of Patient Profile

    In the patient's chart, under the Profile tab, there is a place where you can enter just some random notes. In the old EHR, this was visible right by the demos up front and top. Now we have to scroll all the way to the bottom. It would be great to have a "NOTES" box somewhere that is easily accessible, like in the "PROFILE" tab to that area on the right.

  9. In Lab Ordering, send cell phone if home phone doesn't exist

    We're starting to experiment with sending lab orders electronically today now that it's available. We have a number of patients with only cell phone and no home phone, so we never have entered a home phone number. However, generating a lab order requires us to go back and enter a home phone or we can't complete the order.

    If they have a cell phone but no home phone, we would like to populate the order with the cell instead.

    Thanks for providing all of your input and requests for this feature and we’re delighted to release it.

  11. Maintain Day in Scheduler

    When I click on user and select the desired person and then click on the calendar icon to select the desired date, it would be nice if both of them were remembered when moving to and from different patients. Currently, only the user is remembered and the date is lost, having to go to the calendar icon again and re-selecting it.

    Great news! As of 7/31/2015, we have resolved this issue fully. Thank you for your patience.

  12. Chart Note Macros

    We would like to be able to define a short abbreviation (usually with a special character so it cannot be accidentally typed) that expands to whatever text you want. It is found in some EHRs, a stand-alone program called AsUType, and WordPerfect.

    For instance: type a '.' (period), followed by "otc" and a space, and it automatically becomes "over the counter"

  13. Allow sending of a message from Documents

    It would be great if we could send the patient a message from the document viewer, just as we can from the labs. That would entail many fewer clicks than having to open the chart and send the message, for instance conveying mammogram or other xray results which are still sent as documents in our area.

  14. Medication Reconciliation Improvements

    Reconciling medications is currently multi-click task to accomplish. After verifiying what is needed, it reverts back to initial task- and it simply takes so much time to accomplish. A lot of times, there are no medications to reconcile anyway.

  15. Custom Appointment Lengths

    Currently, in the new EHR, appointments can only be set on the 1/2 hr. Our office frequently uses 45 min. slots, thus the current restriction makes the schedule looked cluttered and patients visits are not booked correctly.

  16. Office lab Tests

    I need a way to provide 14 results for this one test, a urinalysis. This would work better as a report with drop downs and a place to add comments.

  17. Correct naming of Tdap and DTaP

    When adding a historical vaccine, I've notice two vaccines in the drop down list that don't exist and at least one common vaccine that is not listed. There no vaccines by the name or abbreviation of TDaP or DTAP. The upper and lower case of these vaccines is VERY important and has to do with dosing. Having TDaP and DTAP available in the drop down is very confusing. On the other hand, Tdap, which is commonly administered, is not on the drop down list.

  19. Common diagnoses for lab ordering

    If a patient does not have a diagnosis recorded in Dx history it would be helpful if we could create a template with our most used diagnoses so that we could easily select them without having to search through the entire system.

  20. Add a Filter for "Reminder" Tasks

    Reminder tasks only appear in the unsorted Task view. My doctors are used to just looking at the filtered view, so they will never see the "reminder" tasks. I bet a lot of other users just do the sorted view too. The unsorted view very quickly fills up with the various task. Unsigned notes to be completed later, med reconcilation, superbills, etc. Pushing the possibly critical "reminder" task below.
