As of 8/20/2015, we are excited to announce that we have deployed Flowsheets and a massive expansion of the types of vital signs that can be entered and viewed longitudinally for patients in the EHR.
You can read about flowsheets and vital sign expansion here: http://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/knowledgebase/articles/515826-how-do-i-use-flowsheets
I whole-heartedly agree with Jeannine Rodems. It would be very helpful to be able to create a Health Maintenance category to keep track of all of the routine health maintenance studies (mammo, Pap, colonoscopy, etc). Was excited to see the Flowsheet feature but then was disappointed when I couldn't create a Health Maintenance sheet.
You have the ability to see who inserted an appointment for which patient and at what time the appointment was created all in the Activity Feed and Audit report. Simply go to your reports section and click Activity Feed and Audit Report. This is where you can sort and filter personal and practice activities.
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.

Autosave and autorefresh is a must! Please consider this high on your list.
Great suggestion. We are also considering other more advanced filtering ability for the Patient Timeline.
Please add your voice to the conversation by commenting below or by voting for this feature so we know it is important to you. By voting or commenting here, you’ll also receive email updates when we begin working on the feature and when we release it.
Also under Timeline under Details of the Encounters, I think it would be more helpful if diagnoses were displayed rather than the chief complaint. A lot of times a patient may just tell the MA that they are there for, say, a cough. However, by the time the patient sees me, they are also complaining about low back pain, blood in the *****, etc. At a future date, it would be helpful to go to the Timeline and quickly see when it was that I talked to the patient about his low back pain or hematuria if I ever have to refer back to that previous encounter.
How about have a right panel that shows everything, ordered by date (most recent date on top)? A small panel on the left side would list out the different sections and clicking each section would filter what we want to see on the right side?

If I set my schedule for 15-min slots, it would be helpful to see the times for each slot to the left of the calander such as 9:00 AM, 9:15 AM, 9:30 AM, 9:45 AM, 10:00 AM, etc. Currently, it only displays hourly times (eg 9:00 AM, 10:00 AM, 11:00 AM, etc).
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?
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
As of 8/11/2015, we have deployed ICD-10 coding for Practice Fusion superbills in all PF practices to make sure you are prepared for the October 2015 CMS ICD-10 deadline.
We have also incorporated ICD-10 diagnosis coding directly in the clinical and lab ordering workflows.
To learn more, you can visit our ICD-10 Center here: http://www.practicefusion.com/icd-10/
Additionally, there are 3 helpful knowledge base articles available:
As many of you know, we have deployed the ability for faxes to flow into Practice Fusion from Updox. This method of document publishing may be a positive alternative to scanning of documents.
We will leave this idea as “Acknowledged” for now.
To sign up for this service, please fill in the Updox form here http://info.updox.com/updox-practicefusion/ to create your Updox account or call an Updox representative at (614) 798-8170 ext. 1 to begin the process.

You asked and we listened: Use Pinned notes to manage non-clinical reminders
Practice Fusion continues to take major steps toward updating your EHR with even more features and enhanced workflows. With Practice Fusion’s Pinned Note feature, we have made it easier for practice staff to quickly view pertinent custom details about patients before they are scheduled, before check in, or during a patient visit. A Pinned Note is the ideal place to record non-clinical information specific to an individual patient, where you can have important information readily available. Thanks you to everyone who voted and helped make the Practice Fusion EHR better for everyone. https://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/knowledgebase/articles/1845769
Yes, no need for any special templates. Just add a feature that allows us to free text whatever we like. How the alert pops up can either be a pop-up box when the patient's chart is accessed or maybe a section somewhere in their chart that is highlighted yellow (that we can close if we choose).
