Co-sign / Countersign chart notes

I'm a nurse practitioner. In Tennessee my supervising physician needs to be able to co sign certain of my charts and a certain percentage of my charts. I must sign and the MD must sign. A flagging system or simply allowing 2 signatures on the same chart is needed.

    This is a feature that we would be interested in as well. Very useful in our Behavioral Therapy practice

    Physicians are not required to co-sign charts in Florida (one of the most restricted practice states for ARNP). Restricting APRN ability to sign charts causes me to change title from NP/PA to MD/DO. An option should be created for both provider types (physicians and authorized non-physicians) to practice within their scope.

    Yes, this is a critical feature that is needed to continue to allow practices with midlevel providers be able to use this EHR.

    As a supervising physician in TN, it is a legal requirement that i cosign the progress notes and medical records of the mid-level practitioner i supervise. Allowing 2 signatures on the same chart is needed for all mid-level providers.

    Please add co-sign feature to Practice fusion! My collaborating MD lives 9 hours away and we only meet quarterly. Would be nice if he could sign charts every week instead of having a ton at the end of 3 months. Not to mention the ink it would save me! Thanks PF!!

    Crucial feature! It would help tremendously if Practice Fusion could add a sign and co-sign feature.

    Yes, please add this feature quickly.

    This is critical for our practice to function, please expedite this process!!!!!!!!!!

    It will be great to have this options for PAs in all states. They all require MD/DO supervision.

  • Dr Jessica Aleman commented  · 

    When being audited in the past, auditors have reviewed progress notes and other documentation being completed by more than 1 provider it has frequently been required to have each individual provider sign the note or other document. Is there any way to create a feature where multiple providers can sign documents?

    This is an essential feature for our practice as the MD needs to co-sign charts of diabetes educators.

  • Whitney commented  · 

    Would this be a hard feature to add? It's necessary for an MD to cosign a certain amount of charts for many NPs and PAs to practice. Let me know if there's anything I can do to enable this feature. Thank you!

  • Elias Rodriguez commented  · 

    This is one of the features that is essential in my practice. I would love to exclusively use this EHR for my practice but the inability for Physicians to co-sign the notes of Physician's Assistants and Nurse Practitioners is essential. Please Expedite this update. This is essential for billing and practice issues. Most EHRs have this feature as a basic feature. What else can be done to expedite this feature on Practice Fusion?

  • Hannah Frazee commented  · 

    This is critical for our practice to function, please expedite this process. It's hard to believe this is still not resolved.

  • Anonymous commented  · 

    Agree with all other folks on this thread, including many who have not written a note here -- this is a very VERY important feature of EMR in the modern age, especially as billing gets tighter and more attention than EVER. Please fast track the ability to co/countersign charts. This is a basic necessity for legally practicing modern medicine.

  • Jim Carlile commented  · 

    This feature needs to be added ASAP to make this EMR an possible option for MANY practices as co-signatures are required in most states.

  • Dr ralph casazza commented  · 

    we are a small training site, with interns/trainees who need to have their documentation signed off by a supervisor/licensed clinician.

  • Jeff Garofalo commented  · 

    PracticeFusion has the cleanest UI of any EMR I've worked with. If PA/NP/student co-signing and batch-adding of diagnoses are implemented I would be able to recommend it without reservation.
