  1. 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.

    • Specifying Inclusive Gender Options for Patients

      I'd like to see more options for gender at birth, current gender identification, sexual orientation, and a place to indicate preferred pronoun.

        Hello everyone – great news! You now have the ability to specify gender at birth in the patient Profile as well as gender identity and sexual orientation on the patient Summary page.

        Thank you for your patience as we worked to get this implemented!

      • 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.

          For more information on handling patient message attachments, please see our Knowledge Base article here: https://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/knowledgebase/articles/483766-how-do-i-use-patient-messaging

        • Charting Undo

          It would be great if there was an 'undo' button for charting mishaps.

          • Document uploading - Quick access to type of document by pressing first letter of type

            In the old EHR we were able to type "R" to get to the R's like Radiology or Request for Medical Notes versus having to scroll through all of the options. Please bring this back every where in the EHR like Documents, Proivders names, etc.

                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:

                http://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/knowledgebase/articles/1124125

              • Custom Appointment Lengths

                Currently, in the new EHR, appointments can only be set on the 1/2 hr. Our office frequently uses 45 min. slots, thus the current restriction makes the schedule looked cluttered and patients visits are not booked correctly.

                • Collapse side bar in schedule view.

                  The bar on the side that lists 'users, display options, appointment types' takes up too much space. There needs to be an arrow at the top you can click and collapse that option and make the schedule bigger.

                      • 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…

                          Can you remove the automatic periods that appear at the end of each template item? The concept of a template is to create a macro that can be customized to each user's preference. If you could make them user-customizable, that would be best.

                            Please allow us to print eRX receipts in the new EHR. We practice in assisted living facilities (ALFs). We ePrescribe via PF eRX to the institutional pharmacies that service the ALFs. The ALFs themselves need a copy of the RX. The eRX receipt with VOID watermarked across in the old EHR was superb for this.

Currently, only the user is remembered and the date is lost, having to go to the calendar icon again and re-selecting it.

                                    • Rich Text Formatting in Chart Note Templates

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

                                      Thanks!!

                                      • Medication Reconciliation Improvements

                                        Reconciling medications is currently multi-click task to accomplish. After verifiying what is needed, it reverts back to initial task- and it simply takes so much time to accomplish. A lot of times, there are no medications to reconcile anyway.

                                        • Keyboard Navigation of State Address Dropdown List

                                          When adding an address in insurance or in patient information, we would like to be able to type the first letter of the state and have the state come up. Having to scroll down and select on is inefficient.

                                            As of 10/27/16, you can now search for items within a drop-down menu by typing the first few letters, which will jump you directly to the desired item.
