  1. Changing Canceled Appointment Appearance

    It is confusing to see the cancelled appointment still on the schedule immediately after it's canceled. After canceling, can you either remove it from the schedule, drop it to the bottom of the list, or change the way it looks?

    • Patient Appointment Reminder Card Printouts

      We would like the ability to print appointment reminder cards when the patient schedules his/her next appointment. Perhaps, you can add this "Print button" to the "New Appointment" and "Edit Appointment" boxes, next to the Cancel, Delete, and Save buttons.

      As for the reminder, all it needs to say is:

      "Mr./ Mrs. Example, You have an appointment scheduled with Dr. Blank on MM/DD/YYYY at TIME. If you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment, please contact our office."

      Then add our practice information (address, phone, website, etc.) below the paragraph.

      I know that we're trying to move to a paperless…

      • Unsubmitted Superbill Tasks

        It would be helpful if the Unsubmitted superbills tasks actually reflected the true status. We complete superbills at each encounter, so we just have to manually note each as completed under the task tab. We could benefit from being alerted if one was missed. As is we will need to disable the alert to avoid hundreds of them in the task list

        • More options for Scheduling Blocks

          It would be helpful when doing a schedule block to have biweekly or once a month for repeat. Currently it is just set for weekly

            • 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.

              • Medical Dictionary for Spell and Grammar Checks

                We would like to have Practice Fusion utilize a medical dictionary for the spellcheck, rather than just utilizing the basic spellchecker that comes with web browsers.

                • 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?

                  • Rename Signed Documents

                    It would save a lot of time if we could change the title of a document after it has been signed. If there is a typo or some other issue with the title, we have to download it, delete it and re-upload it just to change a few letters in the title.

                    Would be even nicer if we could also change the document type on signed documents.

                      • Medical Excuse Document

                        We would like to have a document in a document library that we manage that will allow us to fill out, save to a patient record, and print for them.

                            As of September 2015, customers are able to modify the size of the text when editing sections of the chart note.

                          • Indicate an appointment slot is being worked on to prevent overbooking

                            As we, and I am sure many other practices have more than one person scheduling at the same time, it would be great if a time slot could be locked when one person is scheduling an appointment. We had a few instances where we ended up double booked in the same slot because both employees were entering an appointment at the same time and there is no way to know if another person is adding a patient to that time slot when you are.

                            • Custom Encounter Notes for Psychotherapists

                              Not all Practice Fusion users are physicians or other providers who would be entering in typical medical data such as vitals. It would be more appropriate for this information to be asked for ONLY in encounter notes completed by those providers needing to use a template that requires it. Psychotherapists for example, would not need this information and generally do not use such information in the daily work of their practice.

                              Furthermore the SOAP note is somewhat out of date for many psychotherapists. Many are not being encouraged and/or were trained on DAP style notes. It would be best if…

                              • Diagnosis List Ranking & Linking

                                It would be paramount to organization, flow and reimbursement if we could rank diagnoses in order of importance during each visit in the Assessment portion of the note, and then link diagnoses to procedure codes in the Plan of each note. Currently, I can rearrange the order of diagnoses, but it does not hold that order in Finalize or future notes. This is a quick and rudimentary method of justifying in each note, why each procedure was performed or how each diagnosis was addressed, without additional sentences or explanations that create clutter in a note.

                                  This is a solid idea. We’re currently digging into how our current Problem List works and this is valuable input for how we may shape this feature.

                                  How else would you like to see the Problem List evolve and improve?

                                • Re-send Referral Option

                                  I would like to see a "Resend" option added to referrals. It is too time consuming to recreate a referral and send it again.

                                  • Track In-Office-Administered Medications (like injectables)

                                    the same way immunizations are entered, I would like to have a way to log injectible medications with lot number, expiration, type of vial, how many mg given, route given, site given, time given, that the patient waited 'X' number of minutes afterwards & the site was examined, no reaction noted, etc.
                                    e.g. intially put into inventory Ceftriaxone 500mg vial LOT C300141 exp JUN2016 and how many of this vial are in our inventory. (exactly like our vaccine inventory) then when it's administered, be able to document everything necessary, also similar to vaccine inventory:
                                    - mg given or dose given …

                                    • When creating an Encounter, warn if Encounter already exists for that day

                                      If one clicks the orange "New Encounter" button on a day where an encounter has already been generated, a window should pop up notifying the user that a second encounter is about to be generated! This would be helpful in that it would allow the user to avoid creating duplicate encounters. Options on this prompt could include "make a new encounter anyway," "do not make a new encounter," or "take me to the latest existing encounter."

                                      • Tracking a patient's authorizations and referrals

                                        It would be very helpful if there was a section to track the patients' authorizations. For example, if a patient requires auth./referral the system should be able to keep count & send alerts when a patient only has ONE/NO authorization in file.

                                        Also there should be a section where we can add the patient's primary care physicians and referring doctors.

                                        If we do issue a referral, there should be a section where we keep track of where we refer our patients and who refer them to us.

                                        • Display Insurance Information on Day View of Scheduler

                                          When displaying a day's appointments under schedule, it would be a major time saver if the user could see some insurance information in two or three extra columns. Payer name , subscriber's insurance ID would be two extremely useful pieces of information to have on that screen. Thank you in advance for considering the idea

                                            Great suggestion.

                                            We would like to hear from others how they’d like to see this scheduler grid be enhanced and improved.
