    Can we please get more sections in the directory, allows us to add NPI, Lic, and free text notes, esp address..

    I now have to google providers addresses for pts for their referrals..

  • Valerie commented  · 

    Also please add: Practice/Company the contact works for in the Contact information for the directory. When we were, we don't always remember which practice the doctor works for.

    Thank you!

  • Ms Joy Reno commented  · 

    More robust Directory would be great
    Address, NPI, TIN, also a comment or note free text area.

  • Linda White commented  · 

    Need Address for providers, not just phone and fax numbers

    Would all be nice!

    Not as good as your suggestion to have actual "fields" added but how I handle this is I use the "notes" section under the Profile tab to record incidentals like these.

  • Ms susan sebzda commented  · 

    Updating the Directory to include Office, Dr., Address NPI, and be able to add an unlisted specialty.

  • MMA commented  · 

    Please add pediatric sub-specialities.

  • Daniel Wise commented  · 

    I'd also like to be able to add company/clinic name information to the referral. Many of our referrals are to a clinic, and being able to search for that clinic and then choose a provider would greatly enhance the directory and referral features.

  • Erica commented  · 

    Also, please allow us to include the person's title and credentials - with punctuation. It's hard to remember whether someone is a Dr. , NP, DO, DC, etc when we are only allowed to add their first & last name, their fax, phone and email. This would be really helpful to have changed! Thanks!

    I need to be able to add the address and phone number so that patients can take a copy of the referral with them. Sometimes patients prefer to schedule their own appointments. This is a feature that should be enhanced urgently.

  • Michelle commented  · 

    please add
    First Name, Last Name and Title, Attention:, Facility/Business

    When we fax numerous records to different doctors in the same facility but need different fax numbers, attention to different people, for referral and medical records.

  • Dr Mary Casals commented  · 

    This seems like a simple fix. Need to add more specialties to the drop down (ex. ENT or otolaryngology is missing.) Need to be able to add business contacts and classify them (lab, imaging center, pharmaceutical. Not sure why I keep getting an error when I add a valid address. Agree with need to freetype more info regarding the contact.

  • Ms Catherine Dowd commented  · 

    Can we get more options in the provider directory! ie: address, option to add different types of providers, notes.

  • Ms Marsha Wright commented  · 

    It would be beneficial for our practice if we could enter the NPI numbers of providers in My Connections instead of just their name, practice contact numbers, and specialty.

  • Gloria Lopez commented  · 

    It would be very useful if you would ADD:
    a field for addresses
    an additional phone number or extensions (sometimes we are given a private number for Physician access which is not the same we give to patients)
    a field for identifiers such as NPI and Tax ID numbers
    a free lance field where we could enter any other pertinent information about the physicians in our directory.
    All of the above are required when we write referrals to the specialists and it would be great to have it all in one place.
    This should be very easy to do and would save us precious time!

    another vote here for a "notes" field, a free-form or custom specialty field, and business name
