  1. multiple diagnoses

    When searching for diagnoses, there are frequent times I want to select more than one (For example, 'pain in foot" brings up right and left. I can only select one at a time than have to repeat) Please allow selecting diagnoses by a check box like you have done with selecting modifiers. This will speed workflow. Thanks

  2. 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.

    Partially Resolved  ·  Aliza responded

    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.

  3. When only one ICD10 option exists, auto-select that diagnosis

    When only one ICD10 diagnosis option is available to be selected to convert from ICD9, the EHR should auto-select the ICD10 without requiring us to also click the Save button.

  4. 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,…

  5. Display Diagnosis End Date in Assessment

    Please list the start date and end date in the Assessment section of the chart note. Otherwise you have to look at the diagnosis list to see if a diagnosis is ended as you cannot see it in the chart.

  6. Expand Diagnosis Encounter Comment

    The current comment area for Diagnosis encounters is too small. We would like to have more space.

  7. Mark Diagnosis Codes as neither "Acute" nor "Chronic"

    We add diagnosis codes that were given to use from the referring doctor so we usually don't know if the problem is chronic or acute. At the moment, there is not a general section where we can enter a Dx code without categorizing it under either chronic or acute. Please add an ability for us to mark a diagnosis as neither of these selections.

  8. Hide Historical Diagnoses when Ordering

    Historical diagnoses are still listed when ordering labs and medications. We would like the ability to customize this feature for our practice and disable them.

  9. Restrict Duplicate Diagnoses

    It would be great if the system would not let us add a diagnosis if it is already active on the patient's chart

  10. Year Arrows in Diagnoses and Medications

    We would like to have arrows that let us change the year when modifying the start date of diagnoses and medications.

    Right now, if a patient started something 5 years ago, I either have to manually enter the date, or I have to click 60 times to get to the start date.

  11. "Add Another" Diagnosis and Medication

    When documenting in a patient's chart, I can click on the "Add Another" button when I'm done adding an allergy. I would like this functionality for Diagnoses and Medications as well.

  12. Rule Out Diagnoses

    Diagnosis should contain a Rule Out section, as we often include R/O diagnoses in our assessments and diagnosis summaries, for ongoing medical problems under clinical investigation.

  13. Customize Display for Stopped Diagnoses

    When a diagnosis is stopped, it is not clearly visible next time that diagnosis is no longer active. For example diabetes without complication(250.00) is now changed to Diabetes with renal complication(250.40) the old diagnosis is stopped. But when coders or Dr is doing next note he cannot readily see that 250.00 is discontinued. If a line goes across then the doctor and coder will avoid that diagnosis.

  14. Frequent Diagnosis Picklist

    There used to be a sheet on which you could check off multiple diagnoses. In PF, the diagnosis section can have a list 20-50 of the most common diagnoses of a practice that can be checked off individually or "select all" and then saved to the chart with one click.

  15. Sort Diagnoses by Code in Patient Chart

    Some patients have a long list of diagnoses. They are not in any particular order nor are sortable by code. It would help us to be able to customize how diagnoses are sorted, so the same dx is not entered multiple times in the same list.

  16. Diagnosis properties: New, Stable, or Worsening

    I am required to state if a diagnosis is new, stable or worsening. A way to mark a diagnosis as one of these on each encounter would be helpful.

  17. One click to add diagnosis to encounter

    Instead of clicking on a diagnosis within an encounter and then checking the box "add to encounter," there should be a one-click option (i.e. check box next to diagnosis) in encounter flow to attach diagnosis.

  18. 4 digit years for Diagnosis Dates

    Please always display 4 digit year associated with diagnoses. I just discovered the date will default to 1900s if you input 2 digits but you don't see that unless you go looking. ie enter 2/14/15 and it will show 2/14/15 but if you go back to the list of diagnoses it is 2/14/1915. I alert staff to enter 4 digit years but the lack of immediate feedback of wrong century increases error. Thanks.

  19. Diagnosis Charting Improvements

    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.

  20. 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.
