Zip Code Auto-Populates State

When adding a new patient via the Scheduler or via the main Charts tab, please default the city and state after we enter the Zip code. This would save us a ton of time when setting up new patients 1 by 1.

We would also like this for the Guarantor address.

    My question exactly! A prompt solution would be appreciated in having to scroll through and choose state from the drop down menu. It is very time consuming and not user friendly when you are entering lots of patient profiles every day. Thanks.

    When adding new patients, entering the zipcode will auto populate state and city. So it would be good to have the field order jump to that field before the City & State fields.

    Also, when adding insurance claim addresses, an auto-populate zip would be great, too.

    New patient info screen does not fill in city and state from the zip code the same way it does in the profile screen. When scheduling a new patient, have to type in city, use MOUSE to scroll and select state (please let us type a letter to select state and then tab to go to the next field).

    this would really help.

    We have this on our current billing system and it is God send! Please update this. It's such a pain to have to type the city and scroll down to find the state.

    I think this has been implemented for patient demographics.

  • Jeff Bentley commented  · 

    Some continuity would be helpful on patients demographic info page.

    Auto fill is nice when u type a zip code in one area, but doesn't work further down the page.

    In some areas like phone and SS# the dashes are provided and in others they're not.
