  1. Great update. Always improving.

    I have only one complaint. I was looking forward to the sign document feature, for years we have had to print our labs faxed to us and uploaded to sign them. I was so happy you were finally adding a feature almost every EMR has, a way to sign off on documents.

    However you swung and missed. Signing only faxes, WHAT? Seriously, who needed that over signing documents.

    Seriously I love DrChrono but sometimes I wonder do you even have doctors on your staff to help you improve DrChrono. If not i’ll do it pro bono!

    Otherwise great update. You guys rock, even when you sometimes get it wrong.

  2. We were excited for the batch billing status change feature bc it would make billing much more efficient. The challenge we soon discovered was that we still need to lock notes for each individual appointment. Is there any way to incorporate a batch or bulk locking notes feature? I understand where that could be problematic so perhaps the flipside would be to enable billing without locked notes. We are not a doctor’s office but a DME supplier so our needs are somewhat different.
