Typical User Cloud Computing

A typical user is Lynn McCallum, MD, a family practice physician in Redding, California. She became a Practice Fusion user in February 2009.

Dr. McCallum’s practice is a full-service family practice office in Northern California, with one physician, one nurse practitioner, two back office personnel, a front desk receptionist and a biller. She sees all ages of patients and she does low risk obstetrics, pediatrics with immunizations, well female and well male exams, general family practice visits and in-office procedures including vasectomy, skin biopsies, circumcisions, lacerations, and so forth. Dr. McCallum describes how she Interacts with Practice Fusion:

We use the Practice Fusion scheduler as it is convenient for both our office and our patients to have the system generate the email reminders for appointments. We have received a lot of positive feedback on that feature.

I have a laptop on a small desk on rollers in each exam room. I review meds and chart on the patient as I sit in front of them. This way I can chart on my laptop and still maintain eye contact with my patient. If a referral for a consultation with a specialist is required, or a referral for an imaging study, I send a message to the MA on Practice Fusion, right in front of the patient. Often the entire note is completed before we leave the room. This minimizes my charting time at the end of the day.

We use the templates provided by Practice Fusion but we also have created a variety of custom templates for our practice, which really speeds up the charting, yet also ensures a complete and thorough chart note. I have pulled up a patient file on Practice Fusion on the computer at the hospital to assist me in completing an H&P for an admission, and since Practice Fusion is web based, I can access it anywhere! I have used Practice Fusion from home when I get an after-hours patient call and I can instantly access their med list and their visit history etc to help me help them.

I also chart that note right at the time they are on the phone with me; no more sticky notes and random pieces of paper that get lost! I love that the pediatric growth charts are automatically graphed when you input the vitals. I love that the Past Medical/Surgical history is completed once, then just added on to as time goes on, rather than the redundant way we had been charting in the past. We also have a current medication list that we can print for the patients if needed and can easily review for completeness. I could go on . . .
