We are very excited to reach this milestone
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 7, 2008
Practice Fusion , a leading force in the healthcare IT revolution and award winning provider of on-demand EMR solutions to the medical practice community, today announced that it signed-on over 100 practitioners across 70 practices since its launch on October 23, 2007, highlighting the product's industry acceptance and momentum.
"This milestone validates Practice Fusion as a leading contender in the EMR market, as well as establishes us as one of the fastest growing EMR communities in the countries," said Ryan Howard, CEO and co-founder of Practice Fusion. "Physicians are realizing that they no longer have to be gouged by existing enterprise vendors, such as Misys, who require a large upfront investment and disrupt their practice by taking weeks to implement. By offering a world-class solution that is free and deployable in minutes, Practice Fusion's innovative model fundamentally addresses the two highest risks for physicians when purchasing an EMR, price and implementation."
Practice Fusion achieved these record results by combining the features of a world-class EMR with a truly unique process for bringing new clients on board. "We are very excited to reach this milestone," continues Alan Wong, Practice Fusion's COO. "Where typical EMR implementations can span months or even years, hindering the practitioner's ability to go live quickly, we have fine-tuned our system so that it takes only minutes to provision the practice and give them access to start charting. These results reflect our continuous investment in our products, process and infrastructure which allows us to better serve our clients."
Practice Fusion's clients span specialty and region. "With Practice Fusion, we have our patient history in one place," says Jason Boylan FNP-C of Robertson Health Services, PLLC. "We looked for an EMR that could help us with creating portable records for our patients. Every system we looked at was very expensive, but with Practice Fusion we liked what we saw and the risk was minimal. The system is great for us and is very user friendly. It is the right solution for our practices."
"I am really impressed with the strong foundation Practice Fusion has built into its EMR," explains Thomas Nedumthottathil, B.Sc., M.D. "It does what the more expensive EMRs do at a significantly lower cost, plus because it is internet based, I have more flexibility in where and how I use it." Referring to the software's ability to interface with the Microsoft Vista voice recognition software, Dr. Nedumthottathil continues, "you can do pretty much everything without using your keyboard and mouse."
Gregory Lorkowski, O.D., sums up his experience by adding, "Practice Fusion eliminates the headaches with getting a new EMR -- no hardware, no software and no backup systems. With Practice Fusion, the hassles no longer outweigh the advantages of going electronic." The Practice Fusion EMR is free, on-demand and low risk. Software licensing and data hosting is free, and practitioners pay a modest $50 support fee. Practitioners can sign up for a demo on the company's website at http://www.practicefusion.com/demo.
