  1. Schedule treatment room or other equipment when creating appointment

    There needs to be a feature that allows the clinician to choose what treatment room a patient is going to be in. And then we need to see that pre-selected treatment room displayed on the calendar.

      Hi Leila—is this something that you would set at the time of scheduling the appointment in the first place? Or something that you decide on the day of the appointment?

    • Customize Default view of Calendar

      Can we customize our default view in calendar to specify which tab appears when we log in?

      • Display Encounter Signed Status on Scheduler

        In our workday, we rarely have the ability to immediately complete all of the patient's documentation and sign the encounter before another patient needs to be seen.

        Currently, this means we have to keep track manually of which patient's documentation has been completed.

        If the schedule showed when the encounter has been signed, it would be vastly easier to make sure that all our patients' documentation was completed.

        • Print Day's Appointments as Blank Chart Notes

          We would love to have the ability to batch print blank chart notes prior to the appointment day. This will speed up the clinic prep. The note only needs to have the demographics on it at the top. The use of the blank note is to give the provider and staff something they can write notes on when they are busy, allowing them the flexibility of being able to chart in practice fusion at a later time.

          • Show More Providers in Day View

            We have 9+ providers in our practice but are limited to viewing only 6 of their schedules at one time. We need to be able to view all our provider's schedules simultaneously.

            • Block 1 Provider at Multiple Facilities

              Currently the blocks will let you choose 1 provider for 1 facility or all providers for all facilities. I need to be able to block 1 provider at multiple facilities maybe by selecting them with a check box or at least an all facilities but but...option. If I could block him at all but 1 location that would be helpful. Our Dr goes to 6 locations and we need to block him at some of them.

              • Visually Differentiate Appointments by Appointment Type and Provider

                It's frustrating to look at a week's schedule and only be able to color code by either appointment type or provider.

                It would make sense that you could find a way to color code appointment blocks for both provider and appt type (make one the fill color and the other the outline, for example).

                • "Room View" for Scheduler

                  One facility with multiple doctors should be able to see a "room view" of side by side treatment rooms in the scheduler.

                    • Copy email address from schedule

                      When I click on an appt scheduled, I can't copy the email address from the top. I have to open the chart to copy the email address. It would be nice to just copy it from there and save the step.

                      • Print Patient Photos When Printing Appointments

                        Thumbnail pictures of the patients should be included on the compact daily schedule for the physician/provider when it is printed. On the chart screen, all the thumbnail pictures and patients scheduled for the day are presented but we are unable to print this screen.

                        • Track Times for all Appointment Status Changes

                          We need to track changes to appointment status, ie track arrival time, in lobby, triage, waiting, exam room, labs, care coordination, to seen time.

                          And then would need the ability to run reports based on this to track quality and work on improvements.

                          • Drop the cursor in the Room field when checking in a patient

                            When we type in the room number for a patient, even though enter is lit up, we have to click on it. It would make things so much quicker if we could just hit the room number & enter on the keyboard.

                              I would like to have map software attached to scheduling profile for house call practice, for example if I have 10 patients to see, I could sort by zip code or by distance from nearest or from a starting point. it will save time for house call practices.

                                We would love to hear from other house-call physicians to see if this would be beneficial to more Practice Fusion customers.

                              • Sort Appointments By All Columns

                                Being able to sort the schedule by phone numbers would be helpful to our practice. Really, any columns in the Appointments tab should be sortable.

                                • View 2 non-consecutive Dates on Scheduler at once

                                  The Day view lets me see one day at a time. The Week view requires that I view an entire week at once. What would really help our scheduling workflows would be the ability to view two different, non-consecutive dates at the same time. For Example: If I were rescheduling an appt from 6/15/15 to 7/15/15, I could select those 2 dates and they would appear on that screen.

                                  • Close a Patient Chart, Automatically Open the Schedule

                                    It would make more sense for my workflow that when I close a patient's chart, I'm immediately taken back to the Schedule. Ideally, this could be customizable per user.

                                    • Customize Start Time view

                                      I see where we are brought to the current time of day every time we go to a view of the schedule. Can we have a choice? pick either current time, or allow us to set a different time (such as 8am or 1pm) that we can choose? Would save a lot of navigating.

                                      • Add the Office Location to the top of the Patient Sign In Report

                                        Adding the Office Location to the top of the Patient Sign In Report will make the report more effective for offices that have several locations.

                                        • Pin Column Headers on Appointments View

                                          On the appointment view, when scrolling down to view appointments, it would be helpful if the date header remained stationary.
