Resolved issues:

  • Fixed Bug: Adding templates to a note resulted in text being inserted in errant locations. This issue has been resolved and all chart note templates are now flowing correctly.
  • Fixed Bug: Clicking "Print Labels" would occasionally hide the summary section. This issued has been resolved with all information displaying and labels printing correctly.
  • Lab/Imaging results dates have been reformatted in the PHR to reflect the date results are received or created. This will help providers and patients who were concerned about missing results or had difficulty locating them on PatientFusion.com.
