  1. Merge Duplicate Patients

    Occasionally, duplicate patient records are created. We would like to have the ability to merge duplicate patients' information.

      • Add a field for preferred names, nicknames, prefixes, and suffixes

        It is absolutely necessary to have a field outside of the legal name fields for preferred names, prefixes, and suffixes. We have many patients in our office who go by a name other than the one that appears on their insurance cards. We also have plenty of doctor patients in our office and it would be nice to note that without having to add "Dr." to their first name field or "MD" or "PhD" to their last name field! Or even for clergy! I don't want to add "Father" or "Sister" or "Reverend" to their first names because that prevents…

          Partially Resolved  ·  Aliza responded

          Hi everyone,

          Good news! As of 9/28/17 you can now add a prefix and/or suffix to the patient Profile page.

          We will keep this feature request as partially resolved as we have not yet implemented the ability to search for patients by preferred name.

        • Delete patient

          We would like to completely delete a patient rather than just mark them as inactive.

          • English at the top of the Preferred Language List

            We would like for it to be easier to enter English as the preferred language for patients. Maybe put it at the top, out of alphabetic order?

            • Patient Deceased Indicator

              Rather than having to enter a specific Date of Death for a patient, we need the ability to just mark a patient as deceased.

              • Zip Code Auto-Populates State

                When adding a new patient via the Scheduler or via the main Charts tab, please default the city and state after we enter the Zip code. This would save us a ton of time when setting up new patients 1 by 1.

                We would also like this for the Guarantor address.

                • Add "Emergency Contact" for patients

                  Most medical practices need to know who the emergency contact is much more often than they need to know who the next of kin is. They are often not the same.

                  • Move Notes section to top of Patient Profile

                    In the patient's chart, under the Profile tab, there is a place where you can enter just some random notes. In the old EHR, this was visible right by the demos up front and top. Now we have to scroll all the way to the bottom. It would be great to have a "NOTES" box somewhere that is easily accessible, like in the "PROFILE" tab to that area on the right.

                    • Next of Kin, Emergency Contact, and Guarantor to have a "same as patient address" box.

                      We are a pediatric practice and end of typing the same address up to 3 times for 1 patient. This box will provide more efficiency and less room for error with repetitive data entry.

                      • Improve New Patient Entry

                        If I try using schedule to enter an appointment for a new patient, I have to type in some letters of the patient's name in order to "add a new patient". Then, my entry does not transfer over and I have to start over with entering the name from the beginning.

                        Additionally, I have to type the full 8 digits of a date of birth before the form will accept it.

                        Can these be streamlined?

                        • Increase size of Patient Notes field

                          When going in a patient's chart under the Profile tab, there is a section called "NOTES" Can more allowable space be added to that section? It's not a lot of space and can use more of it.

                            Hi Dana—can you provide some more detail on the kinds of things you need to store in the Notes field? We’re rolling out Patient Alerts soon, which should give you more space and structure for this sort of thing.

                          • Link Family members' charts

                            It would be nice to be able to link family member's charts, so we can easily track their relationships.

                            It would also be great if the address and phone numbers could optionally populate and update when linked.

                            In pediatrics, we have a lot of families with multiple children, and it would be great to put that John Doe and Sally Doe are siblings and that address and next of kin are the same.

                            • Specifying Inclusive Gender Options for Patients

                              I'd like to see more options for gender at birth, current gender identification, sexual orientation, and a place to indicate preferred pronoun.

                                Thank you for your patience as we worked to get this implemented!

                              • Bulk Print Multiple Patients' Demographics Sections

                                Right now we have to go into 30 charts individually and print those insurance and demographics sections out. It would be much easier if we could just select the patients and then print specific sections of their charts all out at once.

                                • Assign Default Facility to Patient

                                  Because we see patients in multiple facilities, we would like the ability to assign patients to the facilities where they are being seen. So the physician or ARNP only has to log in to PF, select the facility they are working in that day, and see the patients in that facility. Obviously the next option would be to reassign patients to other facilities if need be.

                                  • Custom Patient Profile Sections

                                    I tried to add some more details to the patient's profile but was not able to customize the format. Can we have a customization option similar to online check-in template that can be filled in the office itself. My practice is based in rural community where patients do not check-in online.
