  1. Easier Navigation through Lab Results and Tasks

    When we are going through timeline items (especially lab results), we have to go back to the Timeline, find the next lab result and continue hopping back and forth to view lab results.

    It would be really helpful if there was the ability to click a 'next' and 'previous' button to go through lab results (and chart notes) easily instead of having to jump back and forth between results and the timeline tab.

    • Keep lab open while viewing note

      It would be great to be able to view the labs, a document, RX list at the same time as a note. Then I can make notes, plans, etc in the chartnote while viewing the data, instead of having to write it on a piece of paper or remember it in my head while I switch back and forth between parts of the chart.

        Hi everyone, as you may have noticed, as of mid-2015, you can access Quick Preview to look at lab results and previous notes for the patient when working on a chart note.

        You can learn more about how Quick Preview works here: http://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/knowledgebase/articles/483091-how-can-i-preview-previous-encounters-and-results

        Additionally, if you’re interested in viewing documents or other things that are not currently in the Quick Preview, you can vote for and comment on this idea: http://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/forums/276361-product-ideas/suggestions/7137258-please-make-the-patient-s-documents-visible-and-ac

      • Include Fax # on Print Lab Orders

        It would be helpful for my fax number to appear below my telephone number in the printed lab order. Although it is listed in my facility settings, it currently does not print.
        Some labs which are not connected fax results directly to me and they are hesitant to do so when it is not printed on the order.

        • Access Patient's Chart while Reviewing Labs

          Assume I am reviewing my lab results daily. I go from Tasks and filter to new labs. I review a lab report. I realize the patient has a urinary infection.I want RX antibiotics and call patient. I need to open the patient's chart but here I am locked.I need to go to the chart and retype the patient's name to open up her chart.

          I should be able to access the patient's chart from the lab page.

          • Print Lab Results when printing patient chart

            It would be really helpful if we had the ability to print multiple lab results (such as with when we print the patient's chart) instead of having to enter each lab result individually and going through the print dialogue boxes.

              • Allow lab and imaging orders to be created directly from a SOAP note/visit encounter

                When patients come in for their visits, we will often make a plan for them that includes imaging, lab or even referrals. Unfortunately there is no way to do this directly from the encounter for that visit, nor is it recorded in that encounter. We can order medications during a specific encounter and it's recorded as having been done then, we should also be able to order lab and imaging.
                If a patient comes in with an ankle injury and I order an xray for it, I have to document it in my plan by writing "will order xray" and…

                • Monthly Lab Reports

                  We would like the ability to print incomplete and completed lab requests/results on a monthly basis for follow up with our patients. Many patients do not go and we need to track that. We log everything into a log book now so if we could print a report from PF we could eliminate the log book.

                  We would need one report for requested and one for completed. Or one report showing complete and incomplete.

                  • Physician Electronic Signature on Orders

                    We are having issues with the imaging order not having a signature stamp. They are not accepting "electronically signed" only.
                    Could there be a way to incorporate an electronic version of the doctor's signature as well? They will accept that, but not a hand stamp signature.

                    • Print Prescriptions and Labs without Insurance

                      Currently, if there is any computer perceived problem with the insurance info entered- we cannot print out the prescription. This wastes time and ultimately we have to resort to a paper prescription. The physician should be able to over ride the insurance issue and not have a prescription held up because of an insurance entry issue.

                      • Print order form for imaging (X-ray, MRI, CT) and referrals

                        As an orthopedic surgeon, I order MRIs and also recommend physical therapy to many patients over the course of a day. Right now, I use a hand-written Rx form and hand this to the patient. It would be very helpful to be able to generate these forms/Rx thru PF. Ideally, 1) Demographics (name, DOB) 2) Diagnoses would self populate. Also, to have the ability to create templates for commonly ordered items (left shoulder MRI, physical therapy for ACL rehab, etc). Finally, to have our logo/letterhead with address/contact info would be the cherry on top!

Keep in mind that templates are lab/imaging center specific, and can be shared with your entire practice. Select the pencil icon next to your templates to use the new edit and delete functionality.

                                • Attach scanned documents to Lab/Image Orders

                                  Our imaging centers are not doing electronic results reporting, so we can create an imaging order in them EMR, print that order, fax/send it with the patient.

                                  Our imaging results are sent to us as faxed documents, which we upload into the chart. I would like to designate those faxed documents as "results" for an imaging (or lab) order and attach the results to the order itself somehow.

                                  Obviously, it would still have to be done manually but it can be done when it's uploaded as a document and then assigned to me as an unsigned result by the staff…

                                      • Keep Multiple Lab Reports Open as Tabs

                                        I noticed that you can have tabs open for multiple patient visits, but not labs. Trying to open a second lab result closes the first. It would be very helpful to be able to open multiple lab tabs at the same time.

                                        • Integrating In-House Office Laboratory Information System

                                          We perform the majority of our labs in office. We would like to be able to integrate our in-house Laboratory Information System with Practice Fusion
