Health tech innovator announces entry into the mobile market with sleek, intuitive medical record system for iPad

SAN FRANCISCO – November 13, 2012 – Practice Fusion today announced the beta launch of their Electronic Medical Record (EMR) for the iPad, answering the demand of the nation’s largest doctor-patient community.

Due to high demand for beta access, Practice Fusion is limiting availability to medical providers on a first-come, first-served basis. Interested health care professionals can join the wait list at www.practicefusion.com/beta.

“One in four doctors adopting an Electronic Medical Record system today is choosing Practice Fusion because it is free and easy-to-use,” said Ryan Howard, CEO of Practice Fusion. “With launch of the most elegant and intuitive iPad product on the market, we’re sweetening the deal even further. Now more than ever, there is absolutely no reason for a doctor to spend money on EMR technology.”
