    I have now realized that this idea was too limited. I wish the pane had all tasks (preferably) completed and incomplete. When I open a patient's chart it would be great to see the reminder tasks that are pending, but also the pending prior auths, the pending refills, etc. It would also be great to see what has been done. Again, a patient specific list of just the reminder tasks in the summery pane like messages would be great. but all tasks would be even better.

    Dr Angus Matheson commented  · 

    My vision for this would be a pane in the patient summary, they way that Messages are displayed. So the 3 or 4 most recent tasks (from all users, but regarding that patient) are displayed in the summary. Then, clicking in just like in messages, all tasks (again from all users, all regarding that patient) could be viewed. I would love to filter either incomplete and complete. I don't think I need a filter for all types of tasks that there are in the tasks menu - documents, unsigned, refills, labs, etc - but others might find that useful. I want simply a list of all the tasks pending and all the tasks done on a particular patient. They fact that tasks disappear after they are completed is medicolegally very concerning unless another note is created each time a task is completed. And the that that a pending task for a provider cannot be seen when another provider opens the chart seems to set up things falling through the cracks.

    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

    We would love this for QIP. So if a well child we need calls in, the person who pulls up the chart would be flagged to get them in ASAP. etc.

    My Office manager would like a cycle time report, and many other reports from the business side. would you be willing to make those business reports available? We would like to know where we are slow, how long it takes a message to be taken care of, issues like that which could make our pratice better. I know the system is free on the medical side, those seem very reasonable to charge for. The way you see the meta data to people who want that.

    I imagine this like the eRx - when ordered, it is a line in the plan. Now to see what was ordered, need to go to a seperate place in the chart to see what was ordered on a particular day - in fact go to 2 places one for labs and one for imaging. It would be great if the note automatically showed what was ordered that day.

    I agree! I am really excited to be able to create flow sheets for lots of different things. I loved the idea that each patient could have different flow sheets because each patient has different needs. I would love to make an INR with with doses, health care maintenance for men and women (with things like colonoscopy, cholesterol), diabetic flow sheets with LDL, BP, and HgA1C (which can be done now) but also date of diabetic eye and feet checks. I loved the idea of completed customizable flow sheets for rare things like eye screening for plaquinil patients. And even practice specific like we need to track SHA for partnership of advanced directive forms turned in. The power and flexibility of making whatever flow chart in whatever patient - not the same template flow charts in all charts - I thinks would be incredible.

    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:

    I love the new system!!!!! It has worked really well. Rarely my ICD 9 cannot be linked to ICD 10, so I have to discontinue it and retype a better match. I love that I can keep old diagnosis and all medications, comments that have been associated with it. Great work!

    Dr Angus Matheson commented  · 

    This feature needs, to come, if at all possible, before October 1st. It seems to me that 1) The diagnoses attached to the visit need to be ICD 10 after October 1st, 2) the problem list needs to be ICD 10 - and there needs to be a way that the current problem list can be transformed into ICD 10 (this also needs to be one Dx at a time at the user's request or it will bog everything down) 3) the superbill needs to be able to pull from the ICD 10 chart assessment and ICD 10 problem list - otherwise the provider needs to do all the work of finding the codes each time they bill. I think I am going to put ICD 10 codes into the comments of the ICD 9 problem list until there is clinical integration with ICD 10. I hope it doesn't come to that.

    Dr Angus Matheson commented  · 

    I am so glad you are working on ICD 10! I would love a way to change over the old ICD 9 to ICD 10 codes. It would be best if it wasn't mandatory. The codes are different enough for some that it would take some human involvement - so I would want it when I choose to not happening as soon as I opened at chart. I am playing the the superbill ICD 10 - and I'm not getting some codes I will need - DIabetes only gets me the E11.9 diabetes without complication and I could't find a way to select the options to select the complications like E11.43 - gastroparesis, or E11.319 Diabetes with reinopathy. Same thing with ear infection - it goes to unspecified (H66.9 - but does get the right or left with is great) without option for things like suppurative H66.4. The experts we are listening too say it is going to be very important to be specific in the future. So when we start using it for clinical, and billing after the first year, it would be great to be able to get the most specific ICD 10 code.

    I really need to see the med name, the dose, the sig in a grid. And I need to see all of it together on one page without having to scroll. I am happy with the active and historical. My biggest problem is duplicates. I wish there was a way to label a medication as duplicate - so I don't have to label it as stopped, when the patient is actively taking it. Same problem when increasing dose, I have to discontinue 10mg of a medication to erx 20mg - but the system doesn't have an option to label that - "Switch of other treatment" or "other" - are poor for this very common occurrence.

    I think it is now alphabetical. I preferred lists to have my most common on top, and my least common (of the 20 or so most common) on the bottom.

    I think tasks should still need to be done one at at time, but less useful tasks need to be eliminated. Getting rid of superbills, and mass delete for med rec are great examples. But don't allow mass signing of labs or notes

    The hardest part are the signed labs. We can copy and past the notes that are put in the wrong chart, which while it is a pain can be done. But the labs are stuck. And if the chart being moved from in made inactive, it is almost impossible to find the other chart. This happens mostly when a "Tom" or "Thomas" or a name with a funny spelling that gets put in the the tarditional spelling. So a new chart is made, with a note or two until someone realizes what happened. I think a better search for patient's where the spelling doesn't have to be exact would be more usefull and would dramatically reduce this problem - and help much more.

    This was the greatest feature of Practice Fusion when I started, and the feature that made me think you guys were brilliant. It dramatically increased the change I would add something as an allergy that moment. Adding allergies is so important for patient safety - and it made it so easy and seamless.
