  1. 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).

    • 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.

            • 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.

                • 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).

                  • I would like OnPatient to have a section where the patient fills out that will automatically populate the subjective part of my SOAP note

                    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.

                    • rotate upside down faxes.

                      Faxes often come in upside down. There should be a fast way to rotate it 180 degrees, and save it out that way permanently.

                        • create payment plan for patients

                          It would be amazing if we could set our patients up on a payment plan w drchrono! The payments would transfer to the patient ledger, and they would know they're paying a couple hundred dollars a month instead of paying per visit.

                          features include:
                          1)Track # of visits if on a payment plan
                          2) Type of payment plan (annually, monthly)
                          3) A start date and end date.
                          4) Include family members in the plan
                          5) Prepay for visits

                          • Use new DOJ rules that allow eRx of controlled substances

                            The DOJ now allows eRx of controlled substances with certified two-factor authentication. drchrono should add this functionality ASAP. It's been approved by DOJ and almost every state in the USA.

                            It's an even bigger issue for mobile practices because we are almost never geographically near the pharmacy who needs to receive the triplicate Rx, and patient's family sometimes meet us in the field in order to pick up a controlled substance Rx.

                            Surescripts (I believe this is the platform used inside drchrono) says:

                            http://www.surescripts.com/about-e-prescribing/e-prescribing-of-controlled-substances.aspx
                            Healthcare providers who wish to send prescriptions for controlled substances electronically should take the following steps:

This way if there is a records request or subpoena, we can select what can go and have one file rather than having to do each encounter, note, lab result, fax, etc....one at a time, then zip them to send.

                                  • Allow a color to be assigned to each status (i.e. arrived, complete, etc.)

                                    When selecting a status, it should have the option to assign a color to each status option so the providers/nurses in the back can see who has arrived/departed, etc.

                                    • 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

                                      • Keep track of patient's preventative care appointments

                                        Should DrChrono.com keep track of preventative care appointments for patients? Patients would be able to login and based upon their demographics, they would be told the preventative health care they should be getting based on their age and health profile. They could setup a profile that would send them DrChrono.com reminders when they should be doing something about their preventative health care milestones.

                                        • Create printable appointment reminders

                                          Many of my patients don't want email or text reminders and hang up on any automated call. This should be pretty simple as all of the information is already there. You can easily print 4 post card sized reminders per 8.5x11 page of cardstock.
