    Hi everyone, as you may have noticed, as of mid-2015, you can access Quick Preview to look at lab results and previous notes for the patient when working on a chart note.

    You can learn more about how Quick Preview works here: http://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/knowledgebase/articles/483091-how-can-i-preview-previous-encounters-and-results

    Additionally, if you’re interested in viewing documents or other things that are not currently in the Quick Preview, you can vote for and comment on this idea: http://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/forums/276361-product-ideas/suggestions/7137258-please-make-the-patient-s-documents-visible-and-ac

    Hi Steve--yes, you will be able to populate the note from the lab results that are visible on the screen. Another way to access lab results in your note will be via our new Flowsheets functionality that we're rolling out in waves. http://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/forums/276361-product-ideas/suggestions/7123229-flowsheets-for-viewing-vitals-and-lab-results-over

    Hi everyone,

    Good news! As of 9/28/17 you can now add a prefix and/or suffix to the patient Profile page.

    We will keep this feature request as partially resolved as we have not yet implemented the ability to search for patients by preferred name.

    Hi Erica--your first request is addressed by this idea, so you should vote there: http://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/forums/276361-product-ideas/suggestions/7524556-allow-special-characters-and-numbers-in-patient-na

    Regarding your second request, I would recommend adding a new idea for making city and zip code optional. That way we can gather support and feedback distinct from this Nickname idea. www.practicefusion.com/ideas

    Hi Danielle--regarding the second part of your request, you might want to add your voice and vote to this request to make the PF EHR friendlier for transgender patients: http://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/forums/276361-product-ideas/suggestions/7231223-specifying-inclusive-gender-options-for-patients

    Great suggestion.

    Hi Holly--that's very similar to how we'll be executing this

    Matthew Douglass commented  · 

    Great detail, Dr. Godwin. Thanks!

    Matthew Douglass commented  · 

    Hi Danyelle--thanks for chiming in here. Our goal in merging ideas is to organize future features that we might build to get comments exactly like yours! These will help us shape the feature as we're gathering requirements, before we take the proposed solution to our panel of physicians and beta testers.

    Great news! We have released the custom document types feature into the New EHR. Over the next few weeks, we will be adding this functionality to our practices’ instances of the New EHR, so keep an eye out for this new feature.

    Thanks for providing all of your input and requests for this feature and we’re delighted to release it.

    Hi Christi--no plans at the present time to remove any of the system document types, but you should submit your request as a brand new idea separate from this topic so we can track others' interest and support in making the modifications you request: www.practicefusion.com/ideas

    Hi Mark--this is a great idea.

    Additionally, when we complete this feature in a couple of months, it should be helpful for you to remind yourself of this need the next time a patient's chart is opened or appointment is scheduled: http://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/forums/276361-product-ideas/suggestions/7143162-alerts-regarding-patient-on-scheduler-or-intake

    H Chandra--it would be best if you submitted a brand new idea for this so we can gather supporters from across the Practice Fusion customer base. www.practicefusion.com/ideas

    Also, we have begun working on patient chart alerting, which will likely resolve a lot of this limitation for you: http://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/forums/276361-product-ideas/suggestions/7143162-alerts-regarding-patient-on-scheduler-or-intake

    Hi there--thanks for the additional detail here. We have not yet applied the day maintaining to the Appointments tab. We are working on this aspect of the problem presently.

    Hi Mike--this feature request was to maintain the day on the calendar when you move to other sections of the EHR and back.

    As of 9/15/2015, we have released our Eligibility functionality for 100% of Practice Fusion practices.

    You can read more about Eligibility at this knowledge base article: http://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/knowledgebase/articles/637468

    Additionally, if you’re interested in having us expand Eligibility checks to include Medicare & Medicaid, you can vote for that idea here:

    Matthew Douglass commented  · 

    Hi Dr. Singh--I believe we already have our beta group set up for Eligibility checking, but I've sent your information over to our Billing team to see if there is still space.

    Matthew Douglass commented  · 

    Hi Marc--we'll be starting with private payers. Then we'll likely add in Medicare and Medicaid. The public payers within CMS do not make it easy to perform eligibilities, so it's going to take us some more time unfortunately.

    Matthew Douglass commented  · 

    Hi Danielle--we'll follow up with more details on which insurance companies will work in the first release of this feature. Our longterm goal is to support all of them.

    Hi Chawntele--I think this is the idea you're interested in supporting and adding your comments to: http://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/forums/276361-product-ideas/suggestions/7442341-kiosk-mode-for-patient-intake-and-appointment-book

    Matthew Douglass commented  · 

    Hi Kirsten--based on how others have described this feature, they would like to have the patient perform a visual digital signature directly on particular documents, like HIPAA authorization forms.

    Matthew Douglass commented  · 

    Hi--for any feature request marked with a status of "Acknowledged", we are not currently planning to implement the feature in the next year.

    This doesn't mean we won't implement it, but we have not yet committed to working on it. To improve the likelihood that we'll build it, we need to see votes and comments showing interest in the feature across more of our providers.

    When you see the status update of the feature request change to "Planned", that means we're planning to deliver it in the next 9 months.

    The status will change to "In Progress" when we're actively designing or developing the feature.

    And then to "Resolved" when we've released the feature.

    Hi Lauren--we will be looking for opportunities to move popular feature requests earlier in our development plans. At this time, the team responsible for e-prescribing has a full plate. Thanks for contributing to the conversation.
