Automatically fax locked chart notes to referring providers
We have a very large specialty practice that is driven by provider referrals. Currently we fax all of our notes to our referring providers manually. It would be very helpful to have a button (or an easier way) to fax these chart notes to a given patient's referring provider.
I think drchrono should add a demographic field called "copy_doctors" or something similar, which is a list of referral contacts to send a copy of each note.
I wouldn't automatically fax notes when they are locked, in case there are last minute amendments such as a chest X-ray. Instead I would add a check box to any fax dialogs to send a copy to the patient's "copy_doctors" list, like the existing enhance image checkbox. Also an option on the clinical notes report to send faxes to the "copy_doctors" for each selected appointment.
The interface for editing "copy_doctors" in demographics could be similar to ICD-10 codes on the Quest and HealthGorilla integrations, but with referral contacts instead of ICD codes. So you have a search bar / picklist, and when you have selected contacts they show up in little boxes that you can 'x' out of.
This would be great; this was an option in our program previous to Dr. Chrono and making this switch to you was our idea.....so anything we can do to make things easier for our providers and those that utilize Dr. Chrono I think is a benefit. Thank you for taking the time and considering new options to better Dr. Chrono
