  2. Co-sign / Countersign chart notes

    I'm a nurse practitioner. In Tennessee my supervising physician needs to be able to co sign certain of my charts and a certain percentage of my charts. I must sign and the MD must sign. A flagging system or simply allowing 2 signatures on the same chart is needed.

  3. Print Chart Note: Page Numbers, Patient Record Number, & Patient Names on Each Page

    Please put the patient's name (at the top of the note) and the page numbers (on the bottom of the note) on every page, not just the 1st. Now, when we fax notes to a referring physician for signature, if the signature page is on 2, 3, 4, etc, it does not have the patient name or page "___ of ___". Thank you for your consideration.

  4. Additional Encounter Types

    Most surgeons will see patients in multiple hospitals in the ER on the floor or in the Operating room. When need to have a way to capture and add the documentation to our EMR both for billing and for documentation purposes. Currently the encounter type is limited to office.

    Can you please provide additional encounter types: ER consultation, operating room procedure

  5. Allow for hiding and reordering of chart note sections

    In the current encounter form, vital signs and reason of visit are separated from the encounter note by a large number of sections. Please make it possible for doctor to modify the encounter and choose which information from patient's pmh to include in the note and which not to.

  6. Copy Entire Chart Note from Previous Chart Note

    Would like there to be a master template that would contain the following categories
    Chief complaint, history of present illness, social history, family history, past medical history, surgical history, allergies, medication list, problem list, review of systems, subjective, objective, assessment, plan.

    If possible these categories from previous visit would automatically repopulate. With a click or 2 we should be able to reproduce the same review of systems and the same extended physical exam documentation and the med list and problem list should automatically appear if clicked.

    As of September 2015, customers are able to modify the size of the text when editing sections of the chart note.

    You can read more about rich text editing and how to change the font size here: http://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/knowledgebase/articles/548442-how-do-i-use-rich-text-editing-when-charting-my-en

    If you are interested in increasing the readable font size generally throughout any section of the EHR, you can learn how to do that here: http://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/knowledgebase/articles/554913-how-do-i-adjust-the-font-size-in-my-browser

  8. Custom Encounter Notes for Psychotherapists

    Not all Practice Fusion users are physicians or other providers who would be entering in typical medical data such as vitals. It would be more appropriate for this information to be asked for ONLY in encounter notes completed by those providers needing to use a template that requires it. Psychotherapists for example, would not need this information and generally do not use such information in the daily work of their practice.

    Furthermore the SOAP note is somewhat out of date for many psychotherapists. Many are not being encouraged and/or were trained on DAP style notes. It would be best if…

  9. When creating an Encounter, warn if Encounter already exists for that day

    If one clicks the orange "New Encounter" button on a day where an encounter has already been generated, a window should pop up notifying the user that a second encounter is about to be generated! This would be helpful in that it would allow the user to avoid creating duplicate encounters. Options on this prompt could include "make a new encounter anyway," "do not make a new encounter," or "take me to the latest existing encounter."

  10. Document lab and imaging orders in a Chart Note

    I would prefer when I enter lab or imaging orders, they should go into current chart note. Consider adding an "orders and medication" section in the Plan section.

  11. Custom Fields within Chart Notes

    It would be great to be able to remove certain fields or add fields to a chart note. I have a Mental Health Facility and we don't do vitals or other items, but would love to create one where it would do a mental health assessment with the needed fields that have to be covered by state regulation. This feature would be a huge plus in providing a custom note to our practice, making workflow much improved.

  12. Auto-Save Chart Note on Auto-Lock

    I understand the security issue that mandates an auto lock out. It seems an "auto-save" feature would be helpful when the screen auto-locks so we don't forget to save each time.

    We are happy to report that as of Q4 2015, chart notes are auto-saving every minute, so this idea is Resolved.

    Thanks for your patience as we worked through the most stable way to accomplish this.

  13. Eliminate Duplicate Patient Encounter Notes

    On a daily basis my task list has 2 or 3 notes for the same patient started, but only one is used. One of my staff members may have mistakenly created an encounter. It would be helpful if users were informed by a popup when an encounter is created so these mistakes aren't made.

    I also get encounters created often when appointments are scheduled or when they are cancelled, even if it is far in the future. The popup would help relieve this problem.

  14. Simpler printing of chart notes

    Print should require 1 click.
    Please at least eliminate step 3 and 4.
    Example: to print a SOAP note now:
    (1) click action
    (2) click "print encounter"
    (3) click "print or X"
    (4) click "print or cancel"

    If I’m reading this right, the 4th step is the print step within your browser, which is outside of our control. Agreed, though, this could be simpler by collapsing steps 2 & 3 somehow or by implementing a keyboard shortcut.

  15. Formatting Chart Notes

    Please add more formatting options to chart notes. Things like bullets, bolding, underlining, color, etc. would be extremely helpful.

  16. Review of Systems needs to have a stand alone section

    Review of Systems needs to have a stand alone section as it is used by payers to determine level of care rendered and thus payment.

  17. Mental Health Assessments Custom Form

    I desire to have assessments, which to mental health is essential to document. A Beck Depression Inventory, when completed presently, requires me to hand the patient the paperwork, score the paperwork, scan the paperwork, upload the paperwork, assign and then sign the paperwork. To view it is not easily done in the midst of a session should I wish to review it. Assessments, whether able to add provider performed assessments or patient forms utilized through Patient Fusion as the intake forms have been changed to be able to do, are essential.

  18. Microsoft Word-compatible text formatting

    I will often write my note in Word and then copy/paste into the patient note. When I paste, the EHR inserts multiple line breaks where none existed previously. i.e. only a couple of words per line. I would like Practice Fusion to accept the formatting from Word.

  19. Customize Auto-Generation of SOAP Notes

    I'd love if we could change our setting to turn on or off the auto-generation of soap notes for visits.

    Hi Rachel—thanks for this idea. We’ve heard from many of our practices that they would like this customization feature.

    Currently, when a patient is marked as Arrived, a SOAP note is automatically created. We do this for a number of reasons, but it is clearly not a necessity for many practices. We are considering making this a practice-wide or provider-specific setting for Arriving new patients.

  20. Make Vitals more compact when Printing Chart Note

    Vital signs now take up 3\4 of a printed encounter. Please re-format to smaller vital signs when printing.
