I am working with this large practice (6 providers, 3 facilities, 25 users). Their existing scheduling and billing system of records is Medisoft. The ideal and very promising option was to use the Practice Fusion “import” session. We had one question. They have lots of “bad” patient records (no address, no birth date, etc.) They wanted to clean it up. I hoped for giving them some csv file so they can easily filter and simply get rid of the bad records. It turned out that Practice Fusion during their export/import process they cannot give us the file. Practice Fusion can only use inactive status in Medisoft. But, of course my client does not use it for soem other reason, they use string ***dun (date unknown). I tried using Advantage ODBC drivers, but it did not work out. Remotely I could not connect it the Medisoft, because I installed too new drivers and of course the old drivers matching the Medisoft version are nowhere to be found. I tried using some Data Architect on the server, but then this gave me an error that they are not licensed for using it. Another option is to use another piece of software from Medisoft called Report Professional. We might go back and manually find them, mark them inactive, export to Practice Fusion, then mark them active again. Interesting story. Just to let you know if you think about any data cleansing.

Otherwise, I and client is very happy with Practice Fusion. I just got my certification from Practice Fusion. I selected to promote them and work with client in Chicago area, because I asked current users how they liked it. I heard only nice comments. Real stories, real experiences speak to me. Highly recommended!

If you need assistance with EHR assessment, Practice Fusion implementation, any IT services or just plain advice give a call.

Recently I purchased Canon MX870 printer. It supports wireless printing, scanning, etc. It replaced HP C6180. To summarize HP – nothing but problems. Wireless was very hard to setup, I was replacing ink too often, the software was big and bad. We are talking about almost 500MB software…Local Staples had it for $129, but when I went there last weekend they had MX870 for just $99, no rebates, etc. – instant rebate. Nice.

I was able to setup the printer in literally few minutes, nothing unusual, all was typical. Wireless printing worked right away and I have ADF now. One issue I noticed was that I could not scan. I left it for few days. I thought it was because of the wireless. I searched pretty good Canon website, found few ideas. They recommend reinstalling drivers, disabling firewall and creating another admin account, but nothing worked. Last recommendation was to move other TWAIN drivers our of C:\Windows\twain_32 folder. Of course HP drivers or files were still there. I had my webcam and MX870 connected using USB folders there. I just removed HP folder and immediately MP Navigator software used for scanning started to work. I disconnected USB cable and it still works.

Detail instructions are here:

Big thumbs up for Canon MX870.

FYI: They now have MX882. I did not see major changes to warrant $50 more…
