"Practice Fusion revolutionizes our interactions with the medical community, just as Facebook did for social networking," said Peter Thiel, managing partner at Founders Fund, founder and former chairman and CEO of PayPal, and the first investor and board member of Facebook.  "Practice Fusion advances our health and well-being by bringing the benefits of information technology to medicine: it connects patients to doctors and real-time data, creating life-saving applications that are a total departure from the dominant, often archaic, healthcare paradigm.
