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.Andrew The commented
When adding an appointment, if a patient is inactive, he/she should not be among the list of available patients. We have some charts in duplicate for some reason, and eliminating this would reduce errors in adding notes to the wrong, inactive chart.

Either entry of a new diagnosis/complaint or selection of a preexisting diagnosis in the Subjective section, followed by the appropriate text/template entry.
Then, the diagnosis would be transferred automatically to the Assessment and Plan sections to minimize repeat entry.
