        You can create a second office for no-charge appointments. Have the staff drag those appointments over at the end of the day. The live claims feed allows you to filter by office, so you can batch status change for that office.

          OK, so your endgame here is the doctor wants to know at a glance how much the patient improved.

          You might want to experiment with custom vitals since those are tracked by drchrono, and can be made into graphs at a moment's notice. For example, #4 would work well as a custom vital named "Ankle swelling in past 2 weeks (units=days)".

          You could also make a Clinical Form for that questionnaire, you can use a Free Draw field to draw the veins on the legs and multiple select for most other questions. Staff can then copy this from the paper survey or ask the patient directly.

          This is probably confusing, I'll try and check back to answer any questions.

            Something very similar came up a while ago where an office had patient-facing monitors. I suggested they turn the monitor away, but obviously that doesn't help here.

            I don't believe drchrono ever replied, but they did roll out this feature a while ago:

              We've been doing excuse notes the old fasioned way - with a pen on paper, and scanning that in.

              One way drchrono could implement this is by making the Letter Builder suggested here: https://build.drchrono.com/forums/9359-drchrono-ehr/suggestions/33068620-letter-builder

                One workaround is to use Practice Chat (bottom right on the web EHR). Another is to use the notes field on the lunch break.

                  As a workaround you can download an advanced report with the patient name, phone, and date of next appointment. This will produce a .csv file and you can use Excel (or batch files) to remove any rows where the next appointment is "None".

                    Rescheduling appointments (changing only date and/or time) still creates entries in the audit log. It just won't show up in the patient's chart.

                      I don't know if this is easier than just writing on the paper, but if you can somehow get only collection patients on the Advanced Report, the Custom Export has an option to include chart ID.

                        So, here's how I would do this (if it were up to me).

                        I would let drchrono users upload word documents to use as templates for these letters. We users make the forms with special placeholders such as {{patient}}, similar to placeholders in the existing clinical form builder. Also support for an optional e-sign placeholder so drchrono knows where to put the e-signature, eg: {{e-sign}}

                        When it's time to actually make the letter, where do we put the button? On the web EHR I would put a "New Letter" button on the patient's chart, to the right of the "Print Demographics" button.

                        Clicking the button should redirect to a message (in the message center) containing a PDF of the letter with relevant patient info replacing any placeholders. There should be options to e-sign, print, fax, add to the patient's documents, and return to the patient's chart.

                        On the mobile EHR it could go in the patient tab, under the action menu when you tap the patient's name. This will bring up a list of available templates to use, and selecting one will generate a message with the letter PDF and immediately display it with options to e-sign, print, fax, and add to the patient's documents.

                        Other possible options once the PDF is displayed:
                        write on the finished PDF
                        download the source word file, with all replacements made
                        reupload the ammended source word file
                        send to onpatient
                        email to the patient (with a warning popup not to send protected information by email)

                          Something like the failure messages we already have for direct messaging.

                                Not to mention couples who share an email address. We service a large elderly demographic, and asking them to create (and use) a new email... because our computer program doesn't support couples' email... only hurts our MIPS score.

                                  It's not obvious, but you can actually type the date of birth in the patient search bar and search that way. You must format the date like this: month/date/year

                                  If you search for patients by date of birth, but you don't remember the exact date, you can try the Advanced Report.
                                  1) From the web EHR, navigate to Reports->Advanced Report
                                  2) Make sure the Patients tab is selected, not Appointments
                                  3) Click Patient Filters
                                  4) Click checkboxes for whatever you need to search by (DOB After, DOB Before, Month of DOB, Day of DOB)
                                  5) Click Close
                                  6) The filters you checked off earlier now appear as fields for you to fill out
                                  7) After you have filled out those fields, click Update Filter and the results will update

                                    Well, for Quest Diagnostics and Labcorp drchrono offers automated integration. They also integrated with a third party called Health Gorilla that handles radiology. You would need to contact your account manager at drchrono to discuss those integrations.

                                    That being said manual entry of logs for radiology and imaging is found in the patient chart on the web EHR. They are on the left side as "Lab Orders" and "Imaging Orders". All these let you do is tell drchrono when you ordered the test, when the test came back, and what the results are - it's all manual.

                                          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.

                                            Such a mechanism already exists for viewing previous appointments and could be easily copied to list future appointments. It says "*More history data is available for this patient. Click here to view all of this patient's appointment history."

                                            Also note that appointments three years or more in the future will not show (should not be a problem for most practices).
