New Option for Encounter Observations
Observations are free text fields which are used to record the functional and cognitive statuses of the patient in the encounter note. If the patient doesn't have any observations to report, you can now check the "No impairment" box.
Changes to Clinical Documents
Clinical documents have been renamed to “Exported patient records” to better reflect what they are used for. You will now easily be able to locate and create clinical and referral summaries by going to the patient’s timeline and selecting “Exported patient records” or by selecting the “Actions” menu and choosing “Export patient record”. You will also find a new settings screen option called “Data portability” that allows you to export all patient records at once, rather than one-by-one. Learn more >>
Identifying patients with Pompe Disease
Practice Fusion offers integrated alerts to help you provide your patients with the best care. A new CDS alert will appear in a patient’s encounter when they have the clinical markers that are considered high-risk for Pompe Disease.
We also provide free testing support to help you diagnose patients that are at risk for Pompe Disease.
Additional CDS alerts are coming soon and we will provide more information prior to these new alerts appearing in your EHR. Learn more about CDS alerts here >>
