  1. 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."

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Choose which sections of a Chart Note to Print

    We would like to be able to choose which sections of a Chart Note to print. For instance, remove quality of care/screening info/from printable encounter.

    This way the printable note is simple and to the point and saves paper as well.

  6. 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?

  7. 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"

  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. In "Previous Encounters", list chief complaint

    When editing a SOAP note I click on "Previous Encounters" in the left window and all I see is a list of dates with "Office Visit: SOAP Note"
    It would be more useful if this displayed the Chief Complaint for the previous encounter instead

    Hi everybody, when looking at a patient, you can choose “Actions: Print patient chart”. A screen will open that will allow you to choose what to print for that patient. You can choose all of their encounters (up to 50) to print if you like.

  13. Document lab and imaging orders in a Chart Note

    I would prefer when I enter lab or imaging orders, they should go into current chart note. Consider adding an "orders and medication" section in the Plan section.

  14. "Go To" action dropdown to specific Note section

    I'd like the ability to "Go To" specifically, the Subjective, Objective, Assessment, or Plan section of the Note, not just the Note itself.

    Let's make it just a bit more specific. Thanks!

  15. Formatting Chart Notes

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