  1. Overdue Patient Checkup Report for Patient Recalls

    I'd like to be able to run a report and print a list of overdue patient checkup visits. It helps to call patients who have not visited for their vaccine or annual physicals.

      Can you provide the column details you’d like to see in the report results? Patient Name, DOB, email, phone number, Reason for checkup, etc.

      And how you’d like to populate the report?

      Examples phrased like this would be most helpful for us to design this feature:
      “Patients who have not had a TB vaccine in X months”
      “Patients who have not been in to see any provider in X months”

    • Insert Pictures and Diagrams into Chart Notes

      It would be nice to be able to insert pictures or diagrams into chart notes.

      • Show Full Appointment List for Patient

        I would like the ability to print out all of the multiple appointments that a patient has, so they can see at a glance their past and future appointments and what treatment they are getting.

        • Track copay information per appointment

          Copays come directly from the patient at the time of visit. . It would be helpful if when opening a patient chart, I can document the payment, and/or I can see if the patient paid for his/her copay at their last visit. Plus if paid by credit card, medical debit card, or check and give the patient a receipt printed.

          • Would like cancelled & no show appointments to be hidden when hiding Seen appointments

            Can you fix it to where the no-show & cancelled appointments disappear off of the schedule like the seen appointments? It will save so much time scrolling through the day's schedule & will definitely make the day schedule look cleaner. Thanks.

            • Flow diagnoses to Superbill

              If the chart note has been signed and has diagnoses already entered in the chart note, the superbill should be able to pick up the diagnoses from it directly and give us an option to either add or remove diagnoses. It takes very long time to reselect the diagnoses and procedures again in superbill section.

              • Customized Clinical Alerts per Patient

                We need to create custom clinical alerts for each patient. We are receiving notices from insurance companies telling us the patient needs to have specific screenings (pt is due for mammogram, colonoscopy, eye exam, etc.). We need to see this notice when we open the chart so the physician can meet these needs at the visit.

                  This is a great idea. Are you thinking that you would like to enter in these alerts by hand, per patient? Or, more ideally, the insurance company would connect directly to Practice Fusion and populate the information for you automatically?

                • Co-sign / Countersign chart notes

                  I'm a nurse practitioner. In Tennessee my supervising physician needs to be able to co sign certain of my charts and a certain percentage of my charts. I must sign and the MD must sign. A flagging system or simply allowing 2 signatures on the same chart is needed.

                  • Print Chart Note: Page Numbers, Patient Record Number, & Patient Names on Each Page

                    Please put the patient's name (at the top of the note) and the page numbers (on the bottom of the note) on every page, not just the 1st. Now, when we fax notes to a referring physician for signature, if the signature page is on 2, 3, 4, etc, it does not have the patient name or page "___ of ___". Thank you for your consideration.

                    • Allow attachments to patients' messages

                      Patients are not able to send documents via the messaging system. This would be great if they can send old charts, results they have, etc.

                        Hi everyone – As of 11/17/17, patients are able to attach files and hyperlinks to messages that they send to their provider from within the patient portal. When received in the EHR, these files and hyperlinks can be saved as documents to attach to the patient chart.

                        For more information on handling patient message attachments, please see our Knowledge Base article here:

                        https://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/knowledgebase/articles/483766-how-do-i-use-patient-messaging

                      • We need the ability to enter more than one blood pressure

                        Often, more than one blood pressure reading is taken during a visit. For example, if a patient needs to be assessed for dehydration, or if the BP is very high. There needs to be a way to enter more than one BP reading, including whether it was taken standing, sitting, or lying, and in which arm.

                            We were setup as MDs so we could have administrative rights. Most of us are physician assistants. PAs should be labeled appropriately.

                                For security and regulatory purposes, the Practice Fusion EHR will auto-lock and require password to be unlocked after a period of idle time. Currently, this timer is set to 15 minutes because certain states require the time to be 15 minutes at minimum. We are investigating ways to improve this security feature, which may include customization in the future.

                              • Patient Report for Birthdays and other purposes

                                We would like to be able to run a patient report for a particular date range of birthdays or office visits and export that list so we can send cards. We would need name, phone number, email address, mailing address, among other things.

                                  When I change the filter and display settings for my scheduler, I would like for the EHR to remember those the next time I log in so I don't waste valuable time changing my settings during every login.

                                  • 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…

                                    • Upload Document while in Patient's Chart

                                      Allow document upload not only from home screen , but also while in a patient's chart. this way, when you are working on a patient chart, you can upload a pertinent document directly into the chart. this will save time as you wouldn't have to upload a document and then associate it with a patient.

                                        I would like to be able to check the patient insurance eligibility when I schedule the patient for an appointment.

                                          As of 9/15/2015, we have released our Eligibility functionality for 100% of Practice Fusion practices.

                                          You can read more about Eligibility at this knowledge base article: http://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/knowledgebase/articles/637468

                                          Additionally, if you’re interested in having us expand Eligibility checks to include Medicare & Medicaid, you can vote for that idea here:

                                          Most surgeons will see patients in multiple hospitals in the ER on the floor or in the Operating room. When need to have a way to capture and add the documentation to our EMR both for billing and for documentation purposes. Currently the encounter type is limited to office.

                                          Can you please provide additional encounter types: ER consultation, operating room procedure
