Infographic: Practice Fusion’s Free EHR Community by the Numbers
The fastest growing Electronic Health Record community releases an infographic to celebrate nearly 400% growth over past 12 months and closing of the Series B investment.
SAN FRANCISCO – April 12, 2011 –Practice Fusion, the fastest growing EHR and healthcare community, today released an infographic visualizing the company's growth and unique profile in the medical sector. The infographic follows last week's milestone announcement of the company’s Series B financing round led by Founders Fund.
Since the Electronic Health Record (EHR) system launched in 2007, Practice Fusion has seen triple-digit annual growth. Today, the free, web-based EHR has 75,000 healthcare professional users serving over 9.6 million patients and brings on 350 new users every day. The company is focused on delivering free technology to doctors, nurses and staff in small medical practices across the country.
"There are many things that make Practice Fusion unique, but the diversity of our healthcare community really stands out," said Ryan Howard, CEO of Practice Fusion. "We work with physicians in all kinds of settings: from country doctors delivering babies in Texas, to high-tech house calls in Manhattan. The unifying feature is that our doctors are passionate about using our free technology to deliver the highest standards of care."
Recently voted the No. 1 EHR in customer satisfaction in an independent national survey, Practice Fusion helps doctors across the country securely chart patient visits, review records, schedule appointments, e-prescribe, order and receive labs, share records with other providers and connect patients to their health data in real time online.
Practice Fusion is the only ad-supported EHR system for doctors – helping to remove all cost barriers for medical practices wanting to transition away from paper charts. In a recent Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) survey, 72 percent of medical practices said they had insufficient capital resources to invest in an EHR.
