Can I customize document types?
I would like to be able to customize document types/add different types of documents
Great news! We have released the custom document types feature into the New EHR. Over the next few weeks, we will be adding this functionality to our practices’ instances of the New EHR, so keep an eye out for this new feature.
Thanks for providing all of your input and requests for this feature and we’re delighted to release it.

Hi Carrie--I think this is the idea you're interested in supporting: http://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/forums/276361-product-ideas/suggestions/7149312-custom-school-camp-wic-forms
I would like to be able to make these custom documents be interactive and merge patient data that can be setup by an admin user. Example would be a school/work excuse to merge in patient name when in the patient chart. Would be nice to have a drop down feature available to use to select dates, predefined text set by admin user, etc

Can one delete a custom document type created in error?
Hi Christi--no plans at the present time to remove any of the system document types, but you should submit your request as a brand new idea separate from this topic so we can track others' interest and support in making the modifications you request: www.practicefusion.com/ideas

Love that we can now add the types of documents we frequently use, but is there / will there be an ability to delete the multitude of document types we will never use, to truly customize the list. We are a podiatric practice, and will never use mammography, colonoscopy, or sleep study.

I've been asking for this for 2 years, so glad to see it is planned. An icon for report types would be nice too.
I need to be able to find specific documents at the point of care, such as the prior MRIs of brain, or lumbar spine or cervical spine (not just "radiology" that have been done over the years to follow a lesion or specific problem, or the scanned notes from the multiple consultants seen by a complex patient, or the hospital notes from 2002 and 2001 or 1997 for example.
The need comes up in a patient encounter when that issue us being addressed, or when trying to build a timeline for continuity of care or legal documentation. Many many uses.
In a paper chart I could quickly flip through my "rads" tab where all scans were organized by body part in reverse chron order, latest on top.

That would be helpful, but along those lines, and even more needed, is that the field labs/imaging should actually contain those things, regardless of in-house labs, Quest labs, Labcorp labs, etc. Labs should be in "Labs" and not in documents.
