Practice Fusion (Free EMR) certified as an EHR Module

If you're looking for a free electronic medical record, you may want to consider Practice Fusion - a free, web-based Electronic Health Record (EHR).

Practice Fusion EMR Certification

Practice Fusion is ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 compliant and is certified as an EHR Module in accordance with the applicable certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS). The 2011/2012 criteria support the Stage 1 Meaningful Use measures required to qualify eligible providers for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).

Drummond Group Inc., an Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) Authorized Testing and Certification Body (ATCB) certified fifteen modules of Practice Fusion's EHR system on October 18, 2010. A key step toward our guarantee of Complete EHR certification for 2011 incentives, Practice Fusion was granted certification for eight privacy and security criteria and seven criteria around core Meaningful Use features.

The ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certification program tests and certifies that Complete EHRs meet all of the 2011/2012 criteria and EHR Modules meet one or more – but not all – of the criteria approved by the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) for either eligible provider or hospital technology.

  1. The Practice Fusion EHR was certified as an EHR module. EHR modules cannot support Meaningful Use. Only comprehensive EHRs can do that. The company guarantees it will be certified as a comprehensive EHR sometime next year. If that happens early-enough in the year, it will give users plenty of time to come-up-to-speed and use it to qualify.

  2. Thanks for the clarification Glenn. I will update the title so that it's not misleading.
