  1. Improved Patient Searching

    When you go to type in pt's name it would be nice for the name to automatically start coming up and then you choose the correct name cause now you have to type in there first and last name and if you do not spell it correctly it wont come up at all and then you have to x out of it go back on your main screen and find the correct spelling of the name then go back in and type it again

    • View Total Number of Active Patients

      You used to have an easy way for me to see the total number of active patients in my practice. I would like to have that feature back. The current way of going to reports and selecting age >0 and having to export to an excel sheet to get the number is too time consuming.

        I am happy to report that you can review the number of active patients in your Practice Fusion account via the ‘Patient Import’ tile on your Practice Dashboard.

      • Display patient list

        The old version of PF had the ability to list all patients in the practice. This is useful for a number of common activities, as is the ability to sort by various parameters, e.g. last name. Please add this back

          Update: We’ve made additional enhancements to the Recent patient list.

          Beginning 4/24/2015, the patient list in the new EHR will automatically show up to 1,000 patients, sorted by most recently accessed.

          You can read more about this here: http://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/knowledgebase/articles/483079-how-do-i-search-for-patients-in-the-ehr

          We will also be taking an entire re-look at this feature later this year, to make sure you can find your patients when you need to access them.

        • Display Insurance on Patient List

          Under Charts/Patient List screen, can we have the patient's primary insurance company display on the screen? Otherwise, we have to open patient record and go to Profile to see patient's current insurance.

          • Merge Practice Fusion accounts

            I am selling my practice to another PF user. She would like to be able to merge the 2 accounts. Reuploading thousands of charts will be extremely time consuming.

            • Display Full Patient List

              We would like to see a complete patient list, not in bits and pieces as currently offered.

              • Close many charts easier

                I'd like the X to close a chart to be on the left so I can click in the same spot to close a few charts in a row.

                If I don't have enough charts open to trigger the "close all" button, or if I just want to close some of the charts I have open, it would be nice to hold my mouse in place over the leftmost X, then keep my mouse in place and click again to close the next chart which has now shifted left, etc.

                • Display DOB and PRN in all places Patients are selected

                  Can patient record numbers be added to the document screen when scanning documents and other places patients are selected? We use the record numbers to identify which documents need to be assigned to which drs. As the moment it just shows patient's name. It would be helpful to know what dr. needs to sign off on the document.

                  • Auto-Inactivate Patients

                    We would like to make patients automatically list as "inactive" after a set period of time, customized per provider. And then give us the option to change their status back to "Active." This will cut down on sorting through patients who haven't been in after a certain date.

                    • Mark multiple patients as "inactive" in bulk from the patient list

                      It would be nice not to have to go all the way into the patient chart to select multiple patients and mark them as active or inactive. It would be nice to select the patient or multiple patients from the patient list and and select them all as inactive at one time

                      • If only one search result, Automatically open Patient Chart

                        If you search and it brings up a single name, the system should automatically open that patient's chart.

                        • Open Multiple Patient Charts

                          We would like to be able to open multiple patient charts at once from the scheduler and other patient lists throughout the EHR, rather than having to toggle back and forth to open a bunch of charts that we want to look at.

                          • Separate Middle Name Column in Patient Charts List

                            Unlike first and last name, I rarely know the patient's middle name. As it is displayed it appears that all patient's who have a middle name listed have a compound first name, which I find distracting. We would like to see the Middle name or initial as a separate column.

                            • Sort Patient list by PRN

                              Under patient charts section, could a feature be added to allow the list of patient charts to be sorted by patient ID? This feature is very important when we add new patients to the practice as we need to be able to sort all patient numbers in order and then pick the next number for the new patient.

                              • Easily Pull Up Last Accessed Patient

                                It would be nice to have a feature that allows you to bring up the last patient you accessed with one keystroke. Maybe use one of the "function" keys. Almost 100% of the time we look at the patient's chart before scheduling them. So when we get to the schedule we have to search them again. Hitting a function key to bring that last patient up would be a huge time saver!

                                • Scheduled Charts Date

                                  I notice when I'm in the "charts" tab, and trying to find a patient who is scheduled today, and I choose the "scheduled" option rather than just the recent tab, that it stays on the last date that I looked at for scheduled patients, despite having logged out and in several times.

                                  It would be ideal if the "scheduled" tab opened as a default in today's date, rather than the last date chosen.

                                    • Easy navigation to Today in Charts list of scheduled appointments

                                      In the chart module under scheduled patients, we would like to have a "Today" button that would bring you to that day's schedule.

                                      • Patient Phone Number and Email as column on Patient List

                                        Currently the process of logging into PF and getting to a patient's phone number or email make a quick phone call is very time consuming. It would make a big difference to be able to quickly access patients' contact information as a column in the Patient List.

                                          Hi Kory—this has been implemented in our Patient List. If you log in and go to the Charts section, you’ll see patients’ contact information in the “Contact Info” tab.

                                        • Remember Sort Setting of Patient List in Charts

                                          Currently, when I enter the Chart view from the tab on the left side of the screen, the resulting List of Patients is seemingly disorganized. So I click on "LAST" at the top of the list to sort by their "last name", but when I logout and then login in the next time, the sort order is back to random. My selected preference of sorting by patients' last name does NOT remain from session to session. I cannot find any such preference to be set from within the "Settings" page either.
