The San Francisco Business Times has published a special health care information technology section in this week’s edition. Practice Fusion’s CEO, Ryan Howard, was interviewed by by Patrick Hoge for a piece about emerging technology in the Bay Area.
Here’s an excerpt from “Tech companies hope to catch health IT windfall“:
Nipping at McKesson’s heels is Practice Fusion, a venture capital-backed San Francisco startup with 18 employees that is offering doctors in smaller settings free online records management. It makes money with medical ads and by using and selling anonymous patient data. Ryan Howard, Practice Fusion’s chairman and CEO, says doctors can use his free service and pocket the federal incentive money, which has no strings on its use.”
