Practice Fusion just relocated to the sketchiest neighbourhood of San Francisco, but their offices are some of the best we’ve seen.We visited the office last month right after they moved in — in fact, the second and third floors are still under construction.
Everything your doctor does on pen and paper Practice Fusion wants to do electronically through its free, web-based Electronic Health Record.
The service is free to private practices. At last count, there are more than 130,000 medical providers on the system including doctors, nurses, and front office staff.
Practice Fusion founder Ryan Howard went into massive debt starting the company, but when angels invested more than $36 million starting in April 2009, it was a turning point for the company.
Howard wants to “give everyone a birth to death record that they can access anytime, anywhere” and “be the de facto healthcare ecosystem that all patients use to access their health from and the platform that all devices leverage to access patients.”
