Practice Fusion Inc., the leader in free, Electronic Medical Records for physicians, today announced the signing of Chicago's Ravenswood Physician Association and Seattle's Cascade Billing to its new 'Instant Physician Network'. Practice Fusion's new offering enables large physician groups to deploy its Free Electronic Medical Records (EMR) to all of their physicians in just days and at no cost. In addition, Instant Physician Network gives real-time visibility into all of the physician and patient data in their community.

Practice Fusion's Instant Physician Network enables physician groups to have instant access to key data needed to save lives in patients who are at risk for chronic conditions, including obesity, diabetes, arthritis, hypertension and heart disease. Instant Physician Network accomplishes this by rapidly deploying EMR to their physician community in days or less with no cost. In addition, Practice Fusion also provides tools for complete data access of physicians and patients (prescriptions, diagnoses, history, etc), which can be used for Pay for Performance initiatives, as well as Disease and Wellness Outreach Programs.

"For decades the healthcare industry has been attempting to widely adopt Electronic Medical Records to gain insight into patient care and ultimately provide better treatment," said Ryan Howard, Chairman and CEO of Practice Fusion. "Today marks a dramatic leap forward for the entire industry as Practice Fusion has delivered the silver bullet for physician groups - a free, simple and web-based Electronic Medical Record system that can be deployed in minutes to hundreds of physicians and provide total data access across large physician groups without any costs or integration."

Ravenswood's Physician Association (RPA) has signed with Practice Fusion to utilize Instant Physician Network. Beginning in December, all of 200 of RPA's physicians will be up and running with Practice Fusion's Electronic Medical Records. In addition, RPA will have instant access into physician and patient data across their community to participate in Pay-for-Performance initiatives. RPA has accomplished this with Practice Fusion without any costs or integration. "We evaluated a number of EMR offerings in the market, and Practice Fusion stood out in many ways," said Damon Morse, CEO of Ravenswood Physician Association. "The complete web-based model, rich feature set and no cost pricing made Practice Fusion the obvious choice."

Practice Fusion has also signed Cascade Billing Center as a distributor of its Free EMR to their community of physician and healthcare providers. "Practice Fusion allows Cascade Billing to differentiate in the marketplace by offering an comprehensive and easy to use Electronic Medical Record that can be deployed in minutes and has no cost and integrates with our billing services," said Gordon Bell, President of Cascade Billing Center. "In addition to streamlining the revenue cycle, Practice Fusion gives our practices instant and incredible insight into their patient data, enabling them to constantly monitor and improve performance."
