Practice Fusion

Practice Fusion Inc. is a San Francisco-based company that has developed a free electronic medical record (EMR) system available to physicians in a software-as-a-service (SaaS). The software, also called Practice Fusion, includes modules for patient management, e-prescribing, scheduling and billing. The company claims to have more than 30,000 users in all 50 states.

Patient management features of Practice Fusion include a library of shared charts for physicians within a practice or network, a live feed of patients’ medical and diagnostic history, records of lab tests, immunization records and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) growth charts. The e-prescribing feature maintains a patient prescription history, includes a medication library from which physicians can add custom medications, and has an email feature for sending drug information and dosage instructions.

In June 2010, Practice Fusion announced that its EMR software is now bundled with Dell desktop, laptop, printer, scanner and networking systems that have been pre-configured for the medical industry.
