  1. Add field for primary and/or referring physicians

    Add please a field in schedule section for primary or referring physician and insurance information at the time of making appointment for our patients. As a specialist office, this feature will be greatly appreciated since this will save us time and do double work. Also if possible we can add as well a row to just add any time of comments or notes that would be visible in our patients appointment section. Thank you so much for all your help, and for accepting our suggestions! that is wonderful!

        You have the ability to see who inserted an appointment for which patient and at what time the appointment was created all in the Activity Feed and Audit report. Simply go to your reports section and click Activity Feed and Audit Report. This is where you can sort and filter personal and practice activities.

      • Insurance and Copay columns on the schedule

        For the patients that have copays and are entered in their account, it would be nice to reflect it on the schedule. Perhaps create a column on the schedule. It's hard to know the patient's copay while on the scheduling dialog box. If you were to click on "Chart" and go find it under Profile, the appointment you were making is no longer there. It would be nice to save time by not having to go to the patient's chart after scheduling the patient's appointment and then typing it in the 'chief complaint'.

        • Waiting List

          We would like to have a waiting list of patients to pull from when other patients cancel. You could show patient name, date of scheduled appt, length of appt, so that we can find the patient, change the date and time to the newly open appt slot.

            We need the ability to print the schedule for the entire week, rather than just individual days.

            • Block Scheduling Enhancements

              Have a date range for adding or editing a schedule block for a provider. Currently, each block has to be entered manually in order to edit one, which is very time-consuming.

              • Customizable Block Reason

                Can you allow us to customize the reason for BLOCK on schedule? While we have almost all reasons a custom one would allow us to be more specific on schedule so doctor knows exactly why something is blocked.

                  • Reason for Deleting Appointment

                    When an appointment is deleted, we would like a way to record the reason the appointment is being deleted. That way, we can inform the patient and physician later, if there is a question as to why it was deleted.

                    • Color Code by Appointment Status or Facility

                      We would prefer the appointments to be color coded by status (In Lobby, Pending), rather than color coded by type or provider.

                        • Copy, cut and paste appointments

                          It would be helpful to be able to copy, cut, and paste appointments. This is especially beneficial when multiple appts have to be rescheduled for various reasons. This will save a lot of time for staff as they can go to the calander, choose the new day that the patient wants, see what times are available that day, and then easily paste the appt into the new slot.

                          • Displaying time on the Scheduler

                            Would like the time to show on each day of the schedule in individual increments (5/10/15/30/45 min) so it is easier to tell what time you are making an appointment

                                Currently we have to manually count # of patients seen, cancelled, & rescheduled. Is there a way to have this count displayed at the end of the day?

                                • When de-activating a patient, delete future appointments

                                  It would be really helpful if, when we uncheck the "active patient" box and save, if it would delete any future appointments the patient may have with the practice.

                                  Takes a lot of time to manually go to each future appointment and delete the appointment, especially if you've just discharged 25 patients on one day and have to go through and delete all of their individual appointments.

                                  • Custom Appointment Lengths

                                    Currently, in the new EHR, appointments can only be set on the 1/2 hr. Our office frequently uses 45 min. slots, thus the current restriction makes the schedule looked cluttered and patients visits are not booked correctly.

                                    • Collapse side bar in schedule view.

                                      The bar on the side that lists 'users, display options, appointment types' takes up too much space. There needs to be an arrow at the top you can click and collapse that option and make the schedule bigger.

                                      • Search for patients by phone number

                                        This feature is available on other EMR's I have used in the past and it is a great feature.

                                        • Auto-find next available appointment slots

                                          It would be easier to schedule appt if there was a way to determine next available appt based on reason for visit rather than searching week by week for next opening. For example, we enter the dx DM (set to be for 30 min) and PF will search for the next available 30 min slot.
