  1. Phase out ICD-9 entirely

    We are now more than 6 months past the ICD-9-->ICD-10 transition and I don't need ICD-9 for my practice anymore. We would like for it to be removed from our daily workflow.

    Hello everyone – as of 12/5/17, ICD-9 codes have been removed from the diagnosis display in the patient Summary, encounter note, and superbill. Additionally, ICD-9 codes are hidden when viewing individual diagnosis details, though you can always expand the details to view mapped codes if needed. While you are still able to search by ICD-9 code, search results will return only the diagnosis description and ICD-10 code.

    Please note that this request is considered partially resolved as ICD-9 codes will continue to transfer over from the superbill to integrated billing systems for the time being.

  2. 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.

    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.

  3. Add a field for preferred names, nicknames, prefixes, and suffixes

    It is absolutely necessary to have a field outside of the legal name fields for preferred names, prefixes, and suffixes. We have many patients in our office who go by a name other than the one that appears on their insurance cards. We also have plenty of doctor patients in our office and it would be nice to note that without having to add "Dr." to their first name field or "MD" or "PhD" to their last name field! Or even for clergy! I don't want to add "Father" or "Sister" or "Reverend" to their first names because that prevents…

    Hi everyone,

    Good news! As of 9/28/17 you can now add a prefix and/or suffix to the patient Profile page.

    We will keep this feature request as partially resolved as we have not yet implemented the ability to search for patients by preferred name.

  4. Print entire week's appointments

    We need the ability to print the schedule for the entire week, rather than just individual days.

  5. Upload Document while in Patient's Chart

    Allow document upload not only from home screen , but also while in a patient's chart. this way, when you are working on a patient chart, you can upload a pertinent document directly into the chart. this will save time as you wouldn't have to upload a document and then associate it with a patient.

  6. Billing report

    It would be great to be able to pull a billing report showing encounters by date, for a specified time frame, which would list provider, patient name, procedure codes and amount charged. Thanks.

    You have the ability to see who inserted an appointment for which patient and at what time the appointment was created all in the Activity Feed and Audit report. Simply go to your reports section and click Activity Feed and Audit Report. This is where you can sort and filter personal and practice activities.

  9. Customize Superbills with Tax ID Number

    Since I do not contract with insurance companies, I provide my patients with a receipt/superbill so that they can submit it to their insurance company for reimbursement.

    However, many insurance companies require my tax/employer ID and the multiple clinic addresses where I see patients. Is there any way to add a "customization" text box to the superbill function/template to make it easier for patients? Thanks!

    Hi everyone – to provide some clarification, please note that the Tax ID field on the printed superbill populates based on the EIN/TIN entered into the Medical Identifiers section of your User Settings (under Settings, go to Users and click on your name to edit your details). Once you have entered your EIN/TIN into your User Settings and saved your changes, log out and back into the EHR to see these changes reflected on your printed superbills. The practice/group EIN entered into the Practice Details settings will not populate on the superbill, as detailed in the Knowledge Base article below.

  10. Lifestyle Section Additions

    I would like to be able to indicate if patients smoke marijuana. I need to track that a patient is a tobacco smoker also if they do both.

  11. Prescription Workflow Enhancements

    1.Selecting a medication from the drop-down lists where the dosage form is listed should automatically populate the dosage form section in the prescribing section.
    2. The plan section of the note should NOT automatically close after sending a prescription.
    3. The previous quantity of a prescription medication should automatically populate quantity section of a new prescription.
    4. if you picked a drop down medication direction- Then the computer should populate the day supply after quantity is filled in.
    5. when renewing prescriptions electronically the denial warning should not block the choices for the denial.

  12. Send Supervising Physician to pharmacy

    NPs in Texas have to have the supervising physicians name on prescription. Is there a way this can be added as a structured field to e-prescriptions? At this point I have to add it to each individual prescription.

  13. Have the patient messaging screen show date of birth

    If we go to send a message to a patient and we have more than one patient with the same name with active patient fusion accounts there is no way to figure out which name to select to send the message. DOB should be included in the list of names. The same is true when we receive a message from a patient. We cannot always know which patients chart it belongs to. Meaningful use requires us to utilize this system for a % of our patients

  14. Add a risk score assigned to a patient on his chart. The care team will assign this score and should have ability to run report

    Risk stratification of the patient is an important activity for the care team. The care team should be able to assign a risk score to the patient. This score should appear on the patient chart. Additionally the care team should be able to generate a patient list based on risk score. This will help in care management and give the ability to the care team to monitor the patient to up/down adjust the care.

    Hi everyone – On 6/08/2017, we released the ability to add Patient Risk Score to the patient chart via the patient Summary page. We will be keeping this feature request in progress for the time being as the requested additional reporting functionality for patient risk score is not currently available.

    For detailed information, you can read more about how to add Patient Risk Score in a patient’s chart here:

  15. Consolidate Vaccine Types

    It takes too long to scroll through all the different types of Hep A & B when adding Vaccine lots. A generic one should be at the top for easy selection.

  16. Allow for hiding and reordering of chart note sections

    In the current encounter form, vital signs and reason of visit are separated from the encounter note by a large number of sections. Please make it possible for doctor to modify the encounter and choose which information from patient's pmh to include in the note and which not to.

  17. Display Primary Contact Number across Patient Header

    Maybe add a small check box to select which phone number is the primary contact number and then display that across the header? Currently the top display automatically shows the home number and you have to open the Patient profile to find other numbers.

  18. "Go To" Functionality Enhancements

    Hi. I would like to suggest some ways to make the "go to" functionality more useful.

    1) When we use the "go to" function, we most likely are wanting to actually use/open that section, so I would suggest that it actually bring us to that section AND open up that section for us to use it. Seems odd to navigate just to see the section when I can just as easily scroll there if I want to just look at it. This would be especially true when using the billing section - why else would I navigate to the billing…
