Launched in 2007, the Electronic Medical Record (EMR) platform now serves more than 150,000 medical providers and 40 million patients.

As a result we have become the largest physician-patient platform in the US," said Ryan Howard CEO and Founder of Practice Fusion. "This investment will accelerate the launch of our patient strategy as well as the company's API platform and allow us to continue to dominate the market."
