  1. Track Time Patient Entered Room and Time Patient Left Room

    It would be very helpful if in the Status Field, the time the patient entered the room, as well as the time they left the room was tracked
    (Start and Stop times).

    • Have completed appointments hidden on "today's" view but present on calendar

      The old EHR hid completed appointments on the daily view but kept them on the weekly calendar so that you could look back over your previous day's schedule. The new EHR keeps the appointments thus making your later appointments in the day below the screen or completely erasing them from the weekly view.

        • Reset Confirmation Status on Rescheduled Appointments

          When a confirmed appointment is rescheduled, the confirmation status should automatically return to the unconfirmed status.

          • Compact Weekly Schedule View

            We would like to be able to see the entire week's schedule in the Weekly View. As it is now, we have to print out the weekly schedule to be able to see everything.

            • Print Schedule from the Day tab

              We would like the ability to print schedules from the "Day" screen so we don't have to jump back to the Appointments tab to print.

              • Last name before First name in Scheduler Appointments View

                When listing the schedule, perhaps offer an option to display last name first. Easier to find who is on the schedule after sorting by patient name

                • Appointments in the "Appointments" tab should be color coded

                  Would be nice to see color coding on the "Appointments" tab of the schedule just like we see colors on the Day and Week tabs

                  • Display Arrival Time on the scheduler

                    We would like to have arrival time show up on the schedule.

                    • Improve Readability of Scheduler

                      it would be great to be able to have the ability to change the schedule background color. The current settings are hard for older staff to see. Way too much light grey on white.

                      • Display PHR Account Access on Scheduler

                        It will be very helpful if we could quickly see if a patient is enrolled in the PHR when we are scheduling. Perhaps as an icon or other visual display after a patient is selected?

                        • Send preventive care reminder directly from schedule

                          I think it would be more efficient to send the preventative care reminder for Meaningful Use directly from the schedule while making the appointment instead of having to open the patient's chart & send the reminder there after making the preventative care appointment.

                          • Check In Patient from Patient's Chart

                            Rather than finding the patient appointment on the facility schedule, have a button that can be clicked, type the patients name, and appointment(s) that fall on current day will automatically change status to Arrived.

                            Each provider at our office is a different facility for scheduling reasons, so we frequently have to ask the patient, "who are you here to see?" (or we start clicking through the schedules guessing). This workflow is to navigate to appropriate facility schedule, to the correct date, to the appointment tab, and then select the appointment for check in.

                              • Facility Hours by Date Range

                                We have new hours on specific days from one month to the next. We need the ability to set Facility Hours by date range so we don't book a patient in a slot where we're not open next month but happen to be open this month. For example: Switching our late day from Monday to Tuesday next month.

                                • Import existing calendar data from other software

                                  We would like to migrate our medisoft calendar into practice fusion. we are booked up about 6 months out, so entering the data by hand is a huge pain, but there could be potentially bigger problems with using the existing calendar until we catch up with the new one.

                                    • Appointment Status Signaling

                                      I often am working another chart and my nurse rooms a patient...or two or three. I don't want an alert that takes over the screen or is distracting, because most often patient are roomed when I am seeing another patient. But that number - how many are in rooms - can serve to tell me how far behind I am too. Especially if there was both a roomed/checked in indicator.
