  1. 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?

  2. Increase Max File Size for Uploaded Documents

    We would like to be able to upload larger files into the documents section of the EHR. The current maximum is too small.

  3. 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"

    Hi everyone—I am pleased to announce that we have released this time-saving feature to all Practice Fusion customers as of 8/4/2015.

  4. Allow patients to cancel and/or reschedule appointments

    Can you enhance Patient Fusion functionality to allow patients to cancel and/or reschedule their own appointments online, rather than having to call the office? Would need to have boundaries. For example, only allow canceling or rescheduling up to 24 hours before appointment (if within that 24 hours, must email or call office).
    Thank you.

  5. Delegate Immunization Registry Submission to other users

    In our office nurses administer the vaccines. You should provide the ability for nurses to transmit it to the State Registry, rather than requiring a physician to do it.

  6. Indicate a template line has been used

    I would like the EHR to indicate when you use a line in a template. i.e. it would change color (lighten) to reflect that you already chose that line. When you have a robust template, it is hard see where you last clicked, since you don't always choose all of them.

  7. Lab Comments

    We would like the ability to write a note at the bottom of the lab to cover all pertinent information for the entire lab, rather than each individual lab result.

  8. 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.

    Hi everyone – As of 1/24/2017, we have released a new Appointment Report to all of our practices. This report allows practices to review and filter appointments by facility, status, provider, and date. Once the report is run, practices can also view the list of appointments based on Appointment Type, e.g. “New Patient”. This report can also be printed.

    For detailed information, you can read more about the new Appointment Report here:

  10. 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.

  11. Improving entry of Screening / Intervention / Assessment

    It would be great if every time we added a screening/intervention/assessment, we did not have to scroll back up to add another. Every time one is added, the screen scrolls down.

    Great news! We have updated the Screenings/Interventions/Assessments section of the encounter so that the note will retain its place when an item is added and unnecessary scrolling will no longer be required.

    Thanks for providing all of your requests for this feature – we’re delighted to release it!

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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

  16. Changing Canceled Appointment Appearance

    It is confusing to see the cancelled appointment still on the schedule immediately after it's canceled. After canceling, can you either remove it from the schedule, drop it to the bottom of the list, or change the way it looks?

  17. Patient Document Upload

    It would be wonderful if patients could use the Patient Portal to upload their own medical documents into their chart. As the telemedicine movement grows and healthcare providers offer care to patients across the US, this feature will be even more critical to efficient care.

    We are excited to announce that as of 11/17/17, patients are now able to attach files and hyperlinks to messages that they send to their provider from within the patient portal. When received in the EHR, these files and hyperlinks can be saved as documents to attach to the patient chart.

  19. 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.

  20. Keep lab open while viewing note

    It would be great to be able to view the labs, a document, RX list at the same time as a note. Then I can make notes, plans, etc in the chartnote while viewing the data, instead of having to write it on a piece of paper or remember it in my head while I switch back and forth between parts of the chart.

    Hi everyone, as you may have noticed, as of mid-2015, you can access Quick Preview to look at lab results and previous notes for the patient when working on a chart note.
