      • Automatically invalidate pathology in Chart when treatment is complete

        When pathology is charted (fractures, caries,abscess, etc), it should be invalidated once the treatment is completed. Currently once the condition is no longer present (the treatment is complete), it is a separate step to find the entry and invalidate it, otherwise the pathology shows up around the new restoration, making it look as if the pathologic condition still exists

          • Paint

            It would be great if we could create our own paint types for conditions we have added and be able to design how it is shown in the chart. Also being able to add a text box ( in any size and color) that we can type in and have shown on chart where we want it.

            • double click a tooth to open small text box per tooth - quick acess to shade etc.

              To watch a tooth - only puts a W there. Would be nice to enter a brief note as to why the watch. Also would be nice for fast access to a shade.

              • For HL7 interface, EX and EO should not need to be attached to an encounter to document

                For any HL7 interface, EX and EO should not need to be attached to an encounter. This is very time consuming for staff to document - a patient needs to be fully registered, appt. scheduled, and checked in.....only to void out the encounter after ex and eo are documented. This should be able to be documented outside a typical visit.
                Thanks!

                • Pre-Med Alert

                  I would like to see a different icon option for the patient to show if there is a pre-med vs just having the medical alert "red cross" button.

                    • Chart Signing

                      A pop up showing which charts need to be signed at the end of the day would sure be nice.
                      Thank you

                      • existing restoration to ext on the same day?

                        When a patient comes in with tooth pain the existing restoration is charted (as is the rule for proper record keeping) and then the tooth is removed the same day, the existing restoration doesn't go away out of the chart. It needs to be able to happen. I've called twice, the advice I got was to "predate" the existing to the day before the extraction was done.

                            • Can you put in a way to put to surfaces in yellow on the chart for a condition you want to monitor such as a possible early carious lesion?

                              a way to chart with tooth surfaces a condition you want to monitor such as a possible hypocalcified area that may need future treatment but may not be visible on radiographs. An example would be where teeth needing treatment would have red surfaces, yellow for watches, and green for teeth that have been treated and then some other color for existing work done prior to the patient coming into the practice,

                                  • bring back highlight on misspelled words

                                    Bring back the highlight on misspelled words. Since the last update, when I check notes and a word comes up on spell check, I have to spend time searching through them to find where the problem is. Before, the word in question would be highlighted and I could go right to it and see if it was appropriate for the context.

                                        • Merging patient charts

                                          There should be a way to merge patient charts like x-rays can. Some times people enter someone twice without realizing it and work from both people.
