  1. Give patients access in PHR to view documents uploaded by the provider

    Currently, patients cannot view any documents the provider has uploaded into their chart. We still use a number of paper documents that we then have to scan and upload and categorize appropriately. Most, if not all, of these documents should be able to be viewed by the patient. Our patients are missing out on a lot of essential information as result of this not being a current feature. We can always send documents individually to a patient, but it doesn't make sense to have to do so when they should just be able to gather what they need from their…

    • Message a patient with an education form or instruction sheet

      It would be great to be able to message a patient and attach a file such as an education form or instruction sheet. Or provide the education forms for the practice in practice fusion.

        We’ll send you updates on this idea

        Hi there—can you describe a scenario where this would fit in your workflow, to help us understand the request a little better? Is this something that you would send to the patient usually when an initial diagnosis is entered? Or something done more ad hoc?

      • Include physician name in subject line of Patient Fusion emails to patients

        My patients often delete or spam takes the portal reminder for appointments or even the first encounter template. The name of the provider, rather than the patient fusion should be prominent. Let them learn about patient fusion once they are in the practice, and told what to look for because they have no idea what that is and they think they can ignore it. This has happened numerous times now.

        • Patient Document Upload

          It would be wonderful if patients could use the Patient Portal to upload their own medical documents into their chart. As the telemedicine movement grows and healthcare providers offer care to patients across the US, this feature will be even more critical to efficient care.

            Resolved  ·  Aliza responded

            We are excited to announce that as of 11/17/17, patients are now able to attach files and hyperlinks to messages that they send to their provider from within the patient portal. When received in the EHR, these files and hyperlinks can be saved as documents to attach to the patient chart.

            For more information on handling patient message attachments, please see our Knowledge Base article here: https://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/knowledgebase/articles/483766-how-do-i-use-patient-messaging

          • Send secure messages to patients not enrolled in Patient Fusion

            Would like to have the ability to send message to all patients message with emails, and for the ones not in the portal the would be given the request to opt in to read the message. Without this feature I don't see myself using the great feature and messaging patients because most of the time patients are not signed up.

            • Make Superbills available for patient viewing/printing via Patient Fusion

              At this time of year, many patients request reprints of their receipts/superbills for tax purposes, rebates, HSA/Flex reimbursements. It would be great if we could direct patient to the Patient Fusion patient portal to view/print this themselves. It would also help our MU numbers for patient portal usage percentages.

              • Native Mobile Patient Fusion Application

                We would love to see a mobile patient application that allows patients to online schedule, get notifications when they receive a portal message or get test results back, and be able to communicate with their physician. Patient Fusion web app is nice, but I think my patients would like to have a native app as well for Android and iOS.

                • Simplify Patient Fusion registration

                  I have had numerous patients attempt unsuccessfully to enroll in patient fusion, even though they said they are computer savvy. The process needs simplification.

                  • Patient PHR Access Report

                    It would be helpful to have a report that we can run to find out which patients are in pending status and which ones are active in the Patient Portal / PHR.

                    • Hide Staff Last Names in Patient Portal

                      It is ok to list ex: Kim-Medical Assistant, but we would like the option to hide the last names of our staff for privacy and safety reasons.

                      • Share More Chart Data with Patients

                        I want patients to be able to see more of their records, like their whole office note or specific documents we upload. I would also like to be able to post literature for patients to look at.

                        • Activity Feed by Patients in Patient Fusion portal

                          We would like to be able to track the Patient Fusion activity like we do within Practice Fusion. If we are unable to track everything we would at least like to be able to know if their information has been received by the patient via PHR, because right now we only have confirmation that we have sent the data over.

                          • Create an After Visit Summary

                            Would be nice to create an After visit Summary that prints out after we have checked out an patient. The after visit summary would have the patient's next appointment on there, saving us time filling out an appointment card and will also double as a receipt for copayments. Ideally, everything could fit on one sheet of paper.

                            A small summary of the visit and what to do and not to do if patient has doctors orders. It would also have pertaining information for the patient to use once the visit was over and his or hers vitals for reference.

                                Allow the patient to enter family information into the chart in the format of a family pedigree with medical history. Medical information can be entered in layman terms and ICD 10 coded after verified by health care provider. Family history of genetically transmitted diseases is paramount to a feature that is needed for PHR. This would be helpful for the personal medicine genomic future if it is placed in a searchable data base to answer questions like how many family members have diabetes or glaucoma in your family?

                                Family history of breast cancer, colon cancer, Alzheimer's Disease, etc. could then…

                                  • New Message Badges in Patient Fusion

                                    When patients log in to Patient Fusion after receiving a message from the physician, there is no notification or badge indicating that there is a new message. This is confusing to patients since they don't know where to look. It will help tremendously to have notification of new message so patients will look into the message area.

                                    • Custom Chart Note Content Display in Patient Fusion

                                      Most patients want and should have their diagnosis list. Occasionally in psych it is not appropriate to share it, or the patient does not want to be told. I can't use PatientFusion at all until I have the option to turn off diagnosis list for certain patients (or for all patients).

                                      It's fine if this means that particular patient doesn't count toward my PatientFusion ratio for MU. I don't use MU, but for those who do, this would enable some psych providers to move upward from their current 0% use of PatientFusion. It certainly wouldn't make their MU situation worse.
