UPDATED FEATURES

Quickly identify patients when sending messages
Spend less time searching for patients when composing messages. When searching for a patient, you will now see the patient’s first name, middle initial, last name, date of birth, and sex, helping you identify the correct recipient more efficiently.

Identify and report adverse events of special interest in patients on Prolia
As part of Practice Fusion’s partnership with Amgen Inc. (Amgen) to help providers report adverse events of special interest (AESIs) for patients who are taking or have taken Prolia®, you will now be presented with the Safety Program questionnaire upon opening a patient’s encounter if they have an active record of Prolia® treatment in the prior 16 months and you have not completed a questionnaire for the patient in the prior six months.

Additionally, you can now record these AESIs directly from a patient’s medication list on the Summary tab or within an encounter. Select Record adverse events of special interest for Prolia® safety below the Prolia® entry to begin completing the questionnaire. Learn more about the Prolia® Safety Program in Practice Fusion »
