  1. Delegating e-prescribing ability to practice staff

    Staff, other than prescribers (i.e. MAs and nurses) need to be able to send e-prescriptions in the physician's name.

    • Patient Preferred Pharmacy

      I would like to be able to add and update pharmacies for patients. At this time the doctor is having to do this when sending meds, it would be a great help to the doctor if the staff were able to manage the pharmacy during the intake process or prior to the doctor seeing the patient.

      • Enhancing the e-Prescribing Pharmacy List and Searching

        Can you add a favorite pharmacy list?

        For example, I use mostly 8 pharmacies for 95% of my prescriptions . If I put cvs pharmacy the first time, the system should be able to store the cvs I use and it should automatically come up first.

        • Enhance Batch E-Prescribing of Multiple Meds

          Currently it takes up too much time to e-prescribe. As the system stands now, providers need click into EACH medication and re-populate fields such as qty and then designate tablet or capsule etc then keep going through a few screens before it submits. And we have to do this for EACH medication we prescribe. That is too cumbersome! And doesn't make sense - if when we add a medication it has, for example, "lithium carbonate 300mg capsule" vs. "lithium carbonate 300mg tablet" already selected, then the fact that it is a tablet or capsule we want should be automatically populated…

          • Medication List Duplicates

            I don't know about other docs but I cannot seem to keep my Rx list accurate by the date prescribed.. I end up deleting duplicate prescriptions.. sometimes this happens because an e refill is okay'ed and then gets a separate line but identical name in the Rx list.. (doesn't always happen --?) Sometimes a generic is requested and then brand and generic are each listed. Sometimes all I am changing is the dose.. I would like to be able to follow the chronology of the dose increases under one segment but to change the dose, the med has to go…

            • Print multiple medications at once

              Currently I have to put the prescription paper back in the printer upside down so i can get 2 prescriptions on the page. It would fit four to a page if I could print one in each corner.

              I also have to cut them apart before I hand them to the patient because there are no boxes so technically they are not separate prescriptions from a regulatory perspective. If they had boxes around each, the pharmacy or the patient could cut them apart themselves and that would save me a minute. The big hospital chain in my area does this…

              • Templates for Common Rx Dosage, route, form, etc.

                As you are streamlining e-RX, it would be great to have it save common Rx I write EXACTLY the way I usually write them, which is not in your drop down boxes. I also don't want to have to fill in the dosage, medication form, etc. every time. If it could be saved as a sort of "template" or "personal formulary" so that I just chose from a list of what I most commonly Rx, it would save a great deal of time. Thanks--JP

                • Mobile E-Prescribing

                  we need better iPhone/mobile interface for prescribing. I would love to ditch my other mobile prescribing tool, but i can't effecttively use PF on my iPhone as the screen/text is too small. perhaps a separate app for mobile prescribing

                  • Prior Authorization for Prescriptions

                    Recently saw a demo for CompletEPA (surescripts) for medication prior authorizations. Because it is real-time and integrates into existing EHRs, I think it will significantly reduce the amount of time that my staff and I spend on medication PAs, and it will improve patient care, compliance, and satisfaction. Would love to have the ability to add this service (or a comparable one) to Practice Fusion.

                    • Resend Failed E-Prescriptions

                      I find that many times we'll get a call from a patient complaining that a prescription never made it to the pharmacy. When we look at the prescription, it will say either that delivery is pending or that it failed. In order to send the prescription again, we have to re-create the prescription. Ideally, it would be great to look at an e-Rx that's been sent and have the option to simply click one "resend" button that has the exact same data that just gets re-sent to the pharmacy. This would save time and effort (and possibly allow a staff…

                      • Prescription Workflow Enhancements

                        1.Selecting a medication from the drop-down lists where the dosage form is listed should automatically populate the dosage form section in the prescribing section.
                        2. The plan section of the note should NOT automatically close after sending a prescription.
                        3. The previous quantity of a prescription medication should automatically populate quantity section of a new prescription.
                        4. if you picked a drop down medication direction- Then the computer should populate the day supply after quantity is filled in.
                        5. when renewing prescriptions electronically the denial warning should not block the choices for the denial.

                        • Link Medication Refills to Encounters

                          If I refill a medication, it does not show up on the plan part of the encounter. So in my opinion the SOAP note is not complete. When someone looks at the encounter they do not see ALL the meds prescribed at that time, only the new ones. I would like to bind a refill response to an encounter.

                          • Prior Authorization Customization and Flexibility

                            Right now I have over 100 unassigned prior authorization tasks floating around. Just because a insurance does not cover the medication at 100% does not mean we want to do a prior authorization on that medication. Our pharmacies have meds that are only $4.00 that we want to use. I think we should be able to turn the option off to automatically create Prior Auth tasks, set a threshold for how expensive a medication is before we're prompted to fill out the form, or we should be able to pick which specific medications we want to create a task for.

                              It would be great, if at the time a prescription was sent to the pharmacy, that the patient received an email or text message that the prescription was sent and to which pharmacy it was sent

                              • Display Pharmacy Contact Information even when not e-prescribing

                                When prescribing controlled substances, for instance, I have to check a different prescription on the patient to figure out which pharmacy to use. So, when we are "ordering" controlled substances, can you please activate the pharmacy info for these prescriptions, too, so we have the phone number of the most recently used pharmacies on hand? I am frequently googling to find a pharmacy number now, but would prefer to stay in my EHR to find this contact information.

                                  The name of the meds chosen already shows the units so why do I have to choose the units before continuing? The meds already say tablets so it's a waste of time and redundant to have to choose Tablet again. Make it optional please.

                                    • Print ePrescribing Receipts

                                      Please allow us to print eRX receipts in the new EHR. We practice in assisted living facilities (ALFs). We ePrescribe via PF eRX to the institutional pharmacies that service the ALFs. The ALFs themselves need a copy of the RX. The eRX receipt with VOID watermarked across in the old EHR was superb for this.

                                      • Send Supervising Physician to pharmacy

                                        NPs in Texas have to have the supervising physicians name on prescription. Is there a way this can be added as a structured field to e-prescriptions? At this point I have to add it to each individual prescription.

                                          Just a quick update here. We have updated the PF EHR to send basic supervising provider information and NPI to pharmacies for every e-prescription.

                                          We will be looking into additional changes so supervising provider will appear on printed prescriptions as well, so this idea will remain in “In Progress” status.

                                        • Print Multiple E-Prescription Receipts On a Single Page

                                          We would like to be able to print multiple e-prescription receipts on a single page. The current method wastes paper when we have many to print out.
