Globally set "Do not retrieve prescription history"
We would like to be able to globally say "Do not retrieve prescription history" for our practice
The default is currently set to retrieve "patient's prescription history with provider". Creating a task to remind me to review the patient's Rx list should be an option to toggle to do or not to do. A workflow is already in place in my practice for this......this creates extra busy work of manually switching each chart to "do not retrieve" or periodically deleting these items from the task list.

Mr. Douglass, I think I can chime in on this as this is something that a large swath of the community wanted previously. The idea is right, but the functionality and usability is honestly more of a burden than a help at this point. The history runs when the patient is scheduled, so for a six month follow up, the history is six months old, it's not up to date.... The other major issue with it is the insane quantity of them. This is a feature that should be able to be used, but does not have to be used. Additionally it should be able to be used when one wants...... Say a patient walks in and a prescriber has questions, he/she could then run it making it a truly phenomenal tool. Now, it is a click fatigue causing burden, especially when you already know the patient and their histories.
As a chiropractor I don't prescribe so it's a feature I don't us. However I have recommended PF to at least 3 MD's in my community, so while I might not be the ideal user, I am a promoter and appreciated the free based web software.
