EHR Update: October 5, 2017 Release Notes

Practice Fusion’s EHR updates are released over a two week period — see what’s coming next for your practice.


Functional and Cognitive Status Updates
As part of earning 2015 Edition EHR Certification, we have updated the Cognitive and Functional status fields in encounters. Previously free-text, these are now structured fields from which you can search for and select the appropriate status. Learn more about documenting cognitive and functional statuses »

Additional Vital Signs
Inhaled Oxygen Concentration has been added as a vital sign in Flowsheets to meet certain 2015 Edition EHR Certification requirements. You can now add this within your Flowsheets settings or when editing a flowsheet in a patient chart.


  • Unchecking the option to automatically generate a patient record number in the patient profile will no longer prevent customers from manually entering a patient record number.
  • The free-text Notes field of the patient Profile will once again be included for the affected set of providers when choosing to print patient demographics.
