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.

I actually like how it generates an encounter (it allows me to document a patient no show in the chart, possibly charge the patient for the no-show, and trigger me to send a no-show letter advising follow up or dismissal).
What I've done is create a note type called "no-show" (which I use along with encounter type "office visit"). That way, it should NOT count against Meaningless Use (from what I've read, a note needs to be a SOAP note to count).
