This is a solid idea. We’re currently digging into how our current Problem List works and this is valuable input for how we may shape this feature.
How else would you like to see the Problem List evolve and improve?
agree, need to rank order dx by importance at each visit, and keep that order for use at next visit. Also agree completely with Dr Casals comments. Perhaps in A and P, should offer each dx code, be able to click on each dx and beneath add comments, update assessment , and add plan/orders under to each dx.
Hi everyone—quick update here.
If you would like to take advantage of the spellchecker embedded in your specific browser, there are some instructions and screenshots here: http://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/knowledgebase/articles/580137
Thanks to Dr. Boor for the idea to provide some more guidance on this important issue.
Could the spellchecker at least "learn" the new words and corrections as I add them?
Can you provide the column details you’d like to see in the report results? Patient Name, DOB, email, phone number, Reason for checkup, etc.
And how you’d like to populate the report?
Examples phrased like this would be most helpful for us to design this feature:
“Patients who have not had a TB vaccine in X months”
“Patients who have not been in to see any provider in X months”

Can you define “RF” for the rest of this thread so they know what you’re referring to?
Can you be more specific on which report you’d like to see this information? Are you talking about a task that you’d like to assign to someone else in your office?
Hi everyone—quick update here. As of 6/5/2015 we’ve implemented the first part of this request and you can start tracking your patients’ Care Teams.

agree need options other than "acute" or "chronic" there are many situations that do not fit "chronic" but are old dx, that recur episodically. More importantly, need the date of onset back in the DX summary - chronic or acute or whatever is superfluous and subjective, the date of onset is critical and factual.
A complete record must include PMH data, including items PF places in PMH section: "major events", "ongoing medical problems", "allergies", "family health history", and "social history". All these items are required for E&M documentation, and are part of the basic patient chart.
PF does not provide a way to include this data to send with a referral, or add to a "clinical document", or "referral document"
The only 'work arounds' currently are 1. manually print and fax paper, 2. manually "print" the file to a PDF and attach this file manually to a referral document. or 3. manually copy and paste PMH data into the "S" section of a SOAP note. It can be done, but very time consuming.
Please add the option to include PMH in "referral", "clinical document" and "referral document", just as it is an option for "print".
once the pharmacy info is "in", eRX is so much easier. Having staff or patient enter the preferred pharmacy as part of demographics, beforehand, would be a big time saver in the exam room.
Hi everyone – As of 1/19/2017, we have introduced a new schedule setting to all practices that allows administrators to determine if encounters will be auto-generated for appointments marked as cancelled or no-show.
You can read more about schedule settings here: http://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/knowledgebase/articles/482832
We have also introduced a new Appointment Report that allows practices to review and filter appointments by facility, status, provider, and date, making it easier to track cancellations, no shows, and other scheduling details.
You can read more about the new Appointment Report here:
Agree with comments of Sonya Bumpers 6/6/2016: Hello, As this seems to be an ongoing issue with so many. This office suggestion is what seems simple for us.
If there is a No Show or Cancelled Notice selected for a visit, there should be a auto-fill populated in the encounter that simply prints NO Show or Cancelled, and notes No Signature required by the provider. These notes should maybe be flagged a Orange or Blue color or something simple for the reviewer to know that they can avoid looking at the encounter.
This is a issue that needs fast attention and resolved quickly.
In this office the precept has to view all encounters and it slows him time.
The No- Shows and Cancelled patients are counted for daily summery and monthly reporting.
Agree completely. Encounter type "NO SHOW" and allow staff to sign it off and let us create a report no shows" by patient and as total per month to compare with #encounters. Then we can calculate the % no shows for the practice.
appointment reminders by text or automated message would be very useful. Let each practice define their own template text or voice message.
the "caller ID" needs to be the practice office number or people will not pick up the call.
Each practice needs to be able to create their own custom message for text and voice.
Provider list management is a definite problem. Definitely need to be able to hide inactive providers. This is a really HUGE problem. Only active users should show up on pick lists.
(1) need to "hide" inactive users, and
(2) remove them from the message recipient drop-down menu.
Great news! Users can now add encounter types according to their SNOMED code, or HCPCS code.
Thanks for providing all of your input and requests for this feature and we’re delighted to release it.

Thank you for adding "telephone encounter" as an encounter type
please add "note to chart" as an encounter type, or allow custom name for encounter types
please add additional or custom "encounter types".
1. "New Encounters (SOAP)" allows multiple note types (note to chart, record review, summary etc).
2. Once a note type is chosen, however, "encounter type" choices are limited - most important, there is no option for "note to chart" or "records review" or "reminder for next visit" etc.
3. Please allow us to add "encounter types" or at least add "Note to Chart" as an option.
agree, this would be a simple helpful fix for lots of us specialists
I am again finding I need several different "encounter types" in the dropdown list.
I request "note to chart" and "records review". Others have requested "surgery" and "procedures.
Please allow customizeable encounter types.
agree. we need to be able to add encounter types such as "records review" or "summary of prior events" or "old records" or "prior scans"
