Tasks with patient names and due dates
Tasks reminders. Example: on x/x/15 the results of a patient's test should be in. Or: on x/x/16 I must send an order for a routine test to a patient, to have the results on the day of his appointment. To be able to organize it by due date, but at the same time, if I look in the patient's chart, I can see the note
We are excited to announce that Date-based and Patient-based Custom Reminder Tasks are now available for all practices that are using the New EHR! This is just one of many features we’re able to add faster and with higher quality than we could on our old EHR.
You can learn more about this feature here: http://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/knowledgebase/articles/517359-how-do-i-create-custom-reminder-tasks
any progress on this yet?
This is so important to have! Would be nice to be able to create such a task linked to a specific patient, assign it to a specific person (MA, provider, etc), and to have it appear at a future date that we specify. Some examples of what my office uses this feature for include:
1) Patient needs a 6-month follow-up CT chest to re-evaluate lung nodule seen on previous CT.
2) Patient wants lab slip mailed to him before next f/u appt in 9/2015.
3) Patient is due for physical exam. Last PE was on 3/10/14.
I'd enter a lot of things like "Order labs Aug 15." "Check AIMS on next visit after 7/5/15." "Overdue for f/u, mark as discharged patient if no contact by 4/28/15."
I'd prefer these were not a permanent part of the patient record, or if there were an option to include or not include them like we have with messages.

This is something that we are exploring for tasks.
Can you give me some more examples of types of tasks or notes that you would create or expect to see on the chart?
