  1. surgery and history

    Need to be able to update the medical and surgical history between appointments. Currently, if someone has to have gallbladder surgery, we review the note before the next appointment, but it doesn't make it to her note because we may not see that patient for several months. There should be a surgery section that would pull to the note.

    • Approve, deny, and review multiple refill requests simultaneously

      I'm used to Epic EHR which has a better refill request authorization system. I tried to find a screenshot but couldn't.

      But basically we need the ability to authorize/deny refill requests without having to click on each one individually. In Epic they all show up within one window, so you can easily scroll down and approve/deny in the same window. There's also an 'Approve all' button and a 'Deny all' button so you can quickly scroll through and make a decision about authorizing or denying. Currently DrChrono is cumbersome for refills requests because it's so clicky.

      • Update Medication List

        The active medication list should update every time the office accepts a refill request from the pharmacy. Right now every time you accept a refill request it gets logged in the prescription log on the bottom of the screen of the medication list and you have to scroll down the page but it does not update the active medication list on the top of the page. This makes it difficult for staff to know which medications are active and when the last refill date was.

        • We would like to be able to access the documents from where you click on the actual appointment in the tabs at the top.

          When you open up an appointment and there are all those tabs at the top such as billing and so on... is there a way for Chrono to build in a "documents" tab for quick access to upload and view a patients documents? That would be super helpful and save time!

            • Track Lab & Pathology & Imaging results - Log book

              When a lab or pathology or an imaging study is ordered, drchrono should enter info into a log, which is required in most States, so that the result can be tracked. Other systems, such as EMA, have this feature.

                • Charting previous charts inline/side-by-side view , with copy field and copy form buttons

                  previous exam notes inline viewer / side by side view
                  1. inline all notes populate above current note and can scroll up to view previous results.
                  2. side by side - side bar/panel that populates information for previous exam same form that is open
                  there could be a dropdown menu that allows to quickly select which exam you want for side by side viewing.

                  I love having side by side custom vitals to review results from previous exams would love to have all information available in a user friendly way so information can be quickly found.

                  • Disable same-day text reminders before 7am

                    Appointment reminder texts for same-day early morning appointments should not be sent out before 7am. Patients with 8am appointments are getting text reminders at 5:50am because our same-day text setting is set for 2 hours prior to the appointment. The reminder profile screen clearly states at the bottom that text reminders are sent out between the hours of 7am - 9pm.

                    • Data Collection to demonstrate positive outcomes

                      For us specialists who collect common patient data for broad classifications of disease progression or how the disease affects each 'catagory' of a patient's quality of life. Is there a way for us to collect data we can incorporate showing how a patient's quality of life changes (usually improves) over the course of time while treating patients? Its measuring a patient's perception to their disease at the initial consult (a baseline) and if treatment is or ends up, improving a patient's life. Commonly, a patient survey is given to patients initially and periodically intervals post treatments, to collect individual data…

                      • Create a box for 33b

                        Blue Shield requires a pin to process claims correctly. However, we cannot easily put a pin in box 33b, which is where they want the pin. We switch between chiropractic and acupuncture and when we do, all of the acupuncture appointments end up getting denied because they were processed incorrectly. Trying to get Blue Shield to correct them is a hassle. The easiest way to fix this would be to create an extra field in Billing Details. A box we can click to easily add a pin that gets put into box 33b. Having this done would help so much…

                          • 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.

                                • Alert or Auto-assign consent forms for first appointment after a minor turns 18

                                  We have patients who often start coming in during their teens with their parents. When they turn 18, we need them to resign consent forms as an adult.

                                  In addition, most of them wish to still coordinate their care with their parents so we have a "Permission to Communicate Freely" form and most assign one or both parents to handle coordination of their care.

                                  It would be great if DrChrono either auto-assigned these consent forms as their first appointment when they turned 18 or at least notified staff (with a flag or other indicator) so we are prompted to get…

                                    there should be an option to archive the exam room or a provider without archiving the previous appointments for patients. since we can always add another exam room but this takes space in the scheduler.

                                    • Stop remaining follow-up reminders once appointment is scheduled.

                                      Follow-up reminders -- Patients are both annoyed and confused when they continue to receive follow-up reminders after the appointment has already been scheduled. It would be nice if system cancelled any remaining reminders once appointment is scheduled.

                                      • Show more then 10 future appointments

                                        A next button needs to be created under the list of appointments so that you are able to view all appointments scheduled for the patient.

                                        • Creating School/Work Excuse form after Doctor signs and locks notes

                                          Most doctors sign and lock notes upon patient leaving the room. And the patient receives their work/school excuse form at check out from the receptionist. At the moment it will not allow you to do that once the note has been locked. So the doctor has to do it while I the room with the patient. Which creates another thing that slows the doctor down that is not his job to handle.
