  1. Allow us to edit the types of "Appointment Type" categories

    Allow providers to create their own "Appointment Type" drop-down categories rather than limiting us to the 7 options currently available.

      • Bulk “Clinical Document” Export across all Patients

        I would like to suggest that P. F. develop a better way to generate a mass “Clinical Document” for submission to the specialty registries. This is an action that is mandatory twice a year to meet M.U.

        As it stands right now, to generate a clinical document we have to do it one-by-one, and the registry has told me they will need all of our patients exported to them twice a year.

        Please find a way to make this less cumbersome as it’s probably something we’ll all have to do again next year.
        In advance, thanks for your assistance with…

          We would love more colors to choose from. The current colors are similar and hard to differentiate. We would suggest more bolder brighter colors to choose from.

                Hello everyone – As of 2/16/2017, we have introduced the ability to customize your printed medication lists. You can now save paper and select only the most relevant medication information for your patient care needs by printing a patient’s active, historical, or complete medication list from the chart Summary or encounter.

                You can read more about how to print customized medication lists here:
                http://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/knowledgebase/articles/483088-how-do-i-print-a-patient-s-chart-or-certain-sectio

              • 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,…

                  Would be useful to search reminder/tasks for patients to pull up all reminders on them to prevent duplicating reminders or to just see all reminders for a patient.

                    I have a simple request... I love flowsheets so far, but I cannot add serum uric acid to my flowsheets. It is such a common test, but I cannot follow it like the other tests.

                      Hello Edgar,

                      The uric acid test in serum should now be visible to be added to your flowsheets.

                    • 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."

                              Currently, only the primary facility can transmit immunizations to their immunization registry. Immunization registries require that all locations submit their immunizations, differentiated by a location identifier. Each facility under Practice Fusion should be able to register and transmit immunization files to their chosen registry.

                                  Currently, to change (or check) whether a patient gets appointment reminders, one has to open the chart, go to profile, and scroll down. If, when we were scheduling the patient, or on the appointment display, we could click the checkbox to allow appointment reminders, that would help immensely, and be of use when scheduling follow-ups. We could confirm with the patient - as they are scheduling - whether they want to receive reminders.

                                      When replying to an internal message, the cursor should start in the message box. Currently when clicking "reply", it starts in the recipient box, even though there is a recipient.

                                        As of 6/26/2015, the cursor will now drop in the message box if you’re replying to a message. Thanks for creating and supporting this idea.

                                        We would like to be able to set the Daily calendar so we only see office hours. Anything beyond office hours should not even show up on the calendar.

                                        • Option to hide historical diagnoses in Superbill diagnosis selection

                                          We would like the option to hide historical diagnoses on the Superbill to eliminate potential errors/confusion. And or, find a way to highlight a Primary Diagnosis in both the chart and the Superbill.

                                            As of January 2016, the diagnosis selector in the superbill has been improved to better delineate the difference between Encounter Diagnoses, Active Diagnoses, and Historical Diagnoses. This should make it much easier to avoid potential errors and confusion.
