Chart Note Faxing

We should be able to fax notes directly from practice fusion, NOT as a referral, but to correspond with other doctors that may have referred the patient to us. Many doctors do not like receiving pages of information (demographics, insurance) that they already have. So, making a separate method that we can send JUST the note, and not as a referral, would be great.

    Specialists use PF too, not just primary care, therefore, we need an option for communication that is NOT called a referral. Likewise, I would like to be able to send H and Ps or notes to the pre-op clinic or the OR and right now, its called a Referral, which generates confusion and miscommunication.

    and the ability to fax a scanned document to a consultant.

    There should be a feature where you can fax the patients office notes to other physicians fax machines

    We need to fax SOAP notes directly from practice fusion, NOT as a referral, but to correspond with other doctors that may have referred the patient to us.

  • Anonymous commented  · 

    This needs to happen soon!

  • Mrs Maggie Hensley commented  · 

    This would help our practice a great deal. We fax every chart note to patient's referring doctor or PCP. I have had several offices call me and ask about the "referral" I sent. I have tried to type in window "THIS IS NOT A REFERRAL"

  • Anonymous commented  · 

    That would be a great service by Practice fusion and will simplify our processes in relation to our referring physicians

  • Buffy Yatos commented  · 

    This would help TREMENDOUSLY with Health Information Exchange. The amount of NON-referrals that are sent to other physicians is out of control. We send follow-up notes using the add referral option, and it's not actually a referral.

  • Mrs Cathy McLaurin commented  · 

    This function would help us tremendously. We cc' the referring providers every time we see their patient. I don't need these notes as Referrals, they are just additional correspondence that I need to fax. Adding a basic Fax function would take care of this.

  • Anonymous commented  · 

    Not just the chart note, but we should have the capability to fax a lab report, path or radiology report form the documents section using practice fusion. This feature would be greatly appreciated . Thanks

  • Kim Manning LPN commented  · 

    I would love to see this happen. It would save time and paper.

  • Lisa commented  · 

    I agree we need this change ASAP.
    Faxing chart notes or medical records to another provider without labeled referral would be greatly appreciated. A lot of confusion on the receiving end when they see referral on cover sheet when this is not really a referral.

  • Mrs Dinah Olson commented  · 

    Please consider this as soon as possible. As you can see there are over 400 votes. We get a lot of phone calls from confused offices as to why we are referring patients even when we type this is not a referral in the note section. Please help. I would be happy if you kept the feature as it except have an option to change it from patient referral to patient communication (or something like that).

  • Mr Nilsa C commented  · 

    A fax is NOT a referral. For all the specialties you have in your system, you should seriously and strongly consider a separate and distinct way for specialists to FAX without being labeled a referral.
