  1. 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…

    • Customize Providers for Scheduling Dropdown

      When scheduling a patient, all PF users are listed as "providers" in the dropdown list. I have only one billing provider, the other users are support staff and do not require schedules for the office. If I could customize the list of providers that are in the dropdown when scheduling appointments, it would save two clicks.

      • Shrink size of "add photo" text

        The "Add Photo" text takes up a large part of the lower part of the photo box. Can we remove the text and leave just the plus symbol? Or move the action of "adding a photo" outside of the box where we actually see the patient's pic?

          We have changed the patient photo interaction to display a pencil icon instead of “Add Photo”. This should make it easier to see the patient’s picture now.

        • 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.

            • Vaccine expiration dates

              Occasionally, I'll find that vaccine expiration dates are off by a day or 2 usually from how they were put in. Can you correct this?

              • 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.

                • Include Attesting Party Name in MU Dashboard Print

                  The MU Dashboard printout does not include the name or the particulars of the year or period of attestation. This is a significant inconvenience when you are attempting to create reference documents to help you spot changes in the numbers over time and reduces the utility of the printout as a tool in an audit process.

                    • 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.

                          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.

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

                            • Allow lab and imaging orders to be created directly from a SOAP note/visit encounter

                              When patients come in for their visits, we will often make a plan for them that includes imaging, lab or even referrals. Unfortunately there is no way to do this directly from the encounter for that visit, nor is it recorded in that encounter. We can order medications during a specific encounter and it's recorded as having been done then, we should also be able to order lab and imaging.
                              If a patient comes in with an ankle injury and I order an xray for it, I have to document it in my plan by writing "will order xray" and…

                                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…

                                    When I import text from previous visits such as the physical exam, the imported text has the line breaks intact so each part of the exam is on a separate line. When I import from templates, I expect this behavior to persist. Now I have to press <Enter> to separate them out. Please make it where the line breaks are intact when importing from the templates.

                                      • Easier access to "record patient reminder"

                                        Currently, the Actions menu in a patient's chart allows us to "Record patient reminder". It would be nice to have easier access to mark that we've handled the "record patient reminder". Perhaps a checkbox next to the appointment under the daily "appointments" tab in the schedule so we can tell if we have done them all every day?

                                          There is a somewhat limited selection of environmental allergies. It would be nice to have a free text selection for the allergies. Ex: unable to add allergy for shampoo due to missing selection in pull down list.
