At HIMSS10, Dr. Eric Fishman had the opportunity to speak with Ryan Howard, CEO of Practice Fusion. As an EHR product and service completely free to physicians, they review Practice Fusions unique place in the EHR market. Mr. Howard discusses how Practice Fusion evolved out of the need to assist small, cash constrained physician practices in adopting EHR systems. With the Practice Fusion business revenue model, the company is able to provide licensing, training, secure hosting, backup, and support completely free to physicians. Lastly, Mr. Howards talks about Practice Fusions upcoming product launches, such as Chart Share. Chart Share utilizes Practice Fusions complex back-end system to share real time data between physicians, which will be a key interoperability feature.
