Thanks to everyone for providing your thoughts on how inactive patients should be displayed in Practice Fusion.
As of 03/25/2016, to reduce confusion when working with patient lists, we have made it more obvious in the main Charts section when a patient is inactive.
You will see the words “Inactive” in the patient list as well as the patient header when you are working with an inactive patient.
Additionally, if a patient is marked as inactive, she or he will not appear in search results for appointments, messages, labs, or refills. If you would like a patient to appear in those search results for selection, you’ll need to mark the patient as Active.Ms Diana Hollingsworth commented
Hi just letting folks know our practice is using a "work around" on this topic. We decided to "rename" incorrect pt charts by adding the words, "wrong chart" to the first name of the incorrect record. That way, no matter who is having the problem, it's much easier to avoid selecting the incorrect chart. Not perfect, as no "work around" is preferable; however, has resolved immediate issue.
It would be nicer at some point if this newer version of EHR would not so readily resurrect names from less active practice history.
Hi everyone—as you’ve all noticed, we reintroduced the medication list into the chart note. You’ll also be able to see duplicates and previous prescriptions easier, as of December 2015.
