    • Please add an inventory control module to track vitamins/ supplements and be able to add to Rx list.

      Please add inventory control as a module. Many naturopathic and chiropractic doctors prescribe vitamins/supplements and it would be nice to integrate it into our chart notes instead of having to free text them. Having a place where we could input our inventory and be able to add them to the 'Medication' list would be helpful.

      • Med / Fam / Social History field permanent from visit to visit, just like Medications & Allergies.

        It would help me to be more efficient if the Med / Fam / Social History field was persistent from old notes to the current visit, just like Medications & Allergies. If it were, I would have easy and immediate access to the pertinent medical history when a patient comes in with a new complaint (assuming a complete initial consultation with review of medical history was performed during a previous visit).

          Hi Dr. Malik,

          Per a conversation with our CEO, I believe this was something we were working on that didn’t get cleared to go out. We have pushed a lot of projects to the side so we can focus on the functionality for Meaningful Use 2, which affects a large majority of our user base. I will let you know if I get any other status updates.

          -Victoria

        • Add new/more custom templates for OnPatient

          As OnPatient currently works, there are only 2 templates to build out for which the patient will need to scroll down to complete all required information.

          Mostly for the population that will be using an iPad for the first time (still a lot of people, unfortunately) it would be nice to have the ability to create more templates so that there the are more screens rather than only 2 very long screens.

          Thank you!

          • Add Tabs to Allow Instantaneous Swiching Between the Current Visit & Any Previous Visits, Uploaded Material, Etc

            When examining an existing patient, it's obviously helpful to be able to reference the existing record. With a paper chart, it is a simple matter of flipping thru the pages.

            Doing this with DrChrono, however, is very cumbersome because every time you switch between visits there is an annoying lag while the pages load.

            If we had tabs like those in a web browser, we could keep the previous visit loaded on one tab & then instantaneously switch between them.

            • Alert message in Patient account

              This a request commonly raised by most of our Customers to create an alert message, which they can enter, for each patient account.

              My thought is, we can create some colors, which the doctor/practice can customize, to enter the messages. This way the doctors can see the color shaded in the patient name & understand the reason instead of opening the patient account.

              This Alert message should pop-up whenever a patient account is opened, and also when this patient is chosen during appointment scheduling.

              Some example alerts are -
              1. "Patient has a balance of $100 for 11/20/2011 appointment. Please…

                    • change to color (ie, grey) when the patient has been seen (arrived) and checked out.

                      This is how my staff can keep track of who has been seen for the day on the scheduler without moving the cursor over the names of the patients. It much easier to just look at the schedule and see if there are any patients that has not been seen or vice versa who has been seen already and has checked out.

                        • Ability to create letters!!!

                          We have patients that take time off from work and they require work/school excuse letters, abnormal blood result notice or other recall letters. Its very important to have the feature that the staff can print it out. It is also important when patients file for disability and its easy to track how much time they have missed from work

                          • Allow the office to create a custom automated phone call message.

                            This way each office can leave a message the way they like to. For example our office would like to remind patients to bring their medications in just so we can make sure nothing has changed (we deal mainly with geriatrics so it would help to remind them).

                                Patient enters the office. Staff hands them OnPatient. Patient is able to tap a few buttons and write if desired telling the doctor how they are doing. Their answers will automatically populate the Subjective part of the SOAP note.

                                • Ability to have 1 calendar for all physicians in our practice instead of 4 different calendars and 20 different locations for each physician

                                  Right now we have to switch back & forth between physician calendars and pick physician locations to view that physician's schedule for the day. Make it so that we can customize the system so we have only one calendar for ALL physicians in the practice so we don't have to switch back & forth (this makes it confusing! & gives more room for scheduling mistakes) and add a drop down tab like when you go to schedule a patient to select the appropriate facility or location of service. In a medical office our staff doesn't only schedule but answer phones,…

                                      • Print Glasses/Contacts Rx

                                        Import data from custom fields we create (like final Rx, expiration date, patient dame and DOB, etc.) to print out the glasses/contact lens prescription into a pdf. And the pdf template is fully customizable also.

                                        • Add an API for text expander

                                          Add an API for textexpander to enter notes. This program is cheap, powerful and would be very useful for generating clinic notes! http://smilesoftware.com/TextExpander/touch/sdk.html
