Welcome to October's release notes! Here we review recent product enhancements to help you stay up to date with the changes happening in Fusion. Here is what released last month!

With the 10th Anniversary Update in full swing, we've received lots of great feedback from our customers and made several changes to help increase efficiency. Read on for a review of several changes to documentation, the calendar, and more!

| What's New

Inline Editing

We've added inline editing to additional sections within documentation and the patient information section! This will help streamline your workflow and reduce the number of additional dialogs when adding and editing information. 

Inline Editing (Full Eval)

Adding Activities

Many therapists have asked us for a better workflow for adding activities within a Daily Note. Now you can add and edit activities within the same space!

Adding Activities (New Flow)

Viewing Patient Goals

Short-term goals now automatically display in the Docs tab! You have the option to hide them and only show long-term goals if needed. 

Short Term Goals

Goal Data Formatting

We made a few adjustments to the formatting of goal data in daily notes to make it more readable. 

Goal Layout

Viewing Schedules

Admins now have the option to prevent therapists from seeing other users' schedules. When a user's Calendar setting in Admin is set to View personal calendar only, it will remove all filter options from their calendar except for Locations and Patients.

My Schedule

Day of the Week Picker

Originally, the day picker from old Fusion wasn't available in the update. Customers let us know they loved this option for switching between days, so we added it back! The date at the top left of the calendar transitions to the day of the week picker when you hover over the calendar navigation icons.

Day of Week Picker

Appointment Colors

We've made adjustments to the color of appointments on the calendar! Appointments with a Type of Initial Evaluation, Re-Assesssment, Discharge, or Progress Note display with a tan background color when the Colors calendar option is set to Presets. Appointments of the Type of Normal will display with a blue background. Document and alert icons will also now display as circular icons in the lower right of an appointment.


Authorization Reminders

The Authorization Reminders page has received an overhaul! Now you can sort the information by patient, payer, remaining, and expiration by clicking the column headers. You also have the option to filter by patient and payer. 

Auth Reminders

Fusion Favorite

Goal Workflow

Managing goals in old Fusion while working on documentation used to be a hastle. In the update, therapists can manage and add goals without having to close the document. This greatly improves the workflow and reduces the amount of time it takes to document!
