Practice Fusion allows us to address a growing need in our region for affordable yet robust EMR solutions
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 20, 2007
Practice Fusion™, a leading force in the healthcare IT revolution providing on-demand healthcare solutions to the medical practice community, announced partnerships today with Physician Services, Inc. (PSI) of California and Azalea Health Innovations, Inc. of Georgia. These partnerships extend Practice Fusion's ability to provide clients with billing services and increased professional services capabilities in its growing regions.
"Our partnerships with PSI and Azalea Health Innovations, combined with our earlier partnership with Zydoc Medical Transcription Services, demonstrate the strong momentum Practice Fusion is building in the marketplace," explains Ryan Howard, CEO of Practice Fusion. "We are on target to add a record number of clients in the fourth quarter of this year, becoming one of the fastest growing EMR communities in the US, and much of that is due to the increasing appetite for EMRs in the West and Southeast. All of these practitioners have been brought onboard using our "Live-in-Five™" process which has new clients provisioned, logged on and charting in five minutes. We have changed the experience of EMR selection and made the decision process and start-up much easier and, as a result, becoming the de facto standard for small to medium sized physician practices."
PSI, one of the largest billing services in California, will provide preferred billing services for the Practice Fusion community. PSI will also offer the Practice Fusion EMR to its client base continuing its effort to provide high quality services to its clients. "This is another example of how PSI differentiates ourselves in the marketplace," comments Jonathan Gerber, CEO and Founder of Physician Services, Inc. "With Practice Fusion, it is possible for physicians to license world-class EMR software at no cost. We are excited to be partnering and allow both client bases to realize the benefits of the combined solutions."
Azalea Health Innovations, serving the independent practitioner community in the South Georgia, North Florida regions, provides a complete range of system, technical and billing consulting services for its clients. With this partnership, Azalea Health Innovations will become an authorized distributor and professional services partner for Practice Fusion. "Practice Fusion allows us to address a growing need in our region for affordable yet robust EMR solutions," explains Baha Zeidan, CEO of Azalea Health Innovations. "We are excited to be able to offer our clients an EMR that suits their practice needs and compliments our company's offerings."
Independent practitioners benefit from the Practice Fusion solution in several ways: the low total cost of ownership, simplified start up process and on-demand architecture makes it the lowest-risk EMR solution available to independent practitioners today. Enabling the Live-in-Five process is a web-enabled provisioning system, the ability to run the application on existing hardware, and a completely hosted environment that handles all data uploads, backups and software updates. Practitioners who are interested should schedule a demo.
