Date:4/22/2013

SAN FRANCISCO, April 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Practice Fusion, the country's largest doctor-patient community, celebrated the environmental benefits of its paperless electronic health record (EHR) platform, which has brought life-saving technology to doctors serving 60 million patients across the US. Since its founding in 2005, Practice Fusion's technology has eliminated the need for a total of 9,000 trees by offering digitized health records.

EHR technology in the US has been estimated to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 1.7 million tons—from reductions in paper and X-ray film to lowered gasoline consumption. Practice Fusion's free EHR system allows doctors to lighten their carbon footprint and free up space in their offices, while making significant reductions in paper use:

  • Replacing 60 million paper patient records saves the equivalent of nearly 13 acres of forest
  • According to a GfK Roper survey conducted for Practice Fusion, the average US patient's health record uses over 200 pieces of paper
  • Combined, the 60 million patient records on Practice Fusion's platform would be equivalent to almost twice as much paper used in all the books in the Library of Congress
  • Practice Fusion users have sent nearly 6.5 million prescriptions electronically since January 2013— equivalent to more than 1,000 copies of Victor Hugo 's Les Miserables

Importantly, EHR technology offers health benefits to patients. Practice Fusion recently released
