"The EMR sector is crowded but Practice Fusion has set itself apart, not only by providing a tool that users are passionate about, but by building a smart and sustainable business," said Jed Stremel, Investor in Asana and Flipboard and former Director of Mobile at Facebook. "They have found a unique market for normalizing data and are able to unlock various applications for that data, which is truly groundbreaking."

Stremel, who led Facebook's mobile efforts, joins existing investors Ali Partovi, angel investor and co-founder of LinkExchange, and Hadi Partovi, angel investor and co-founder of Tellme, in the current investment. Including the $23 million Series B round of financing led by Founders Fund in 2011, Practice Fusion has raised over $38 million in total funding with investments from Band of Angels, Felicis Ventures and others.

"Practice Fusion is building the largest database of clinical information," said Hadi Partovi, angel investor and co-founder of Tellme. "I believe this asset will be as strategic and valuable to the $2 trillion healthcare space as the Facebook social graph has been in the web and advertising space."

"Having a positive impact on the world was my main driver when founding Practice Fusion and our investors share that vision," said Ryan Howard, CEO and Founder of Practice Fusion. "The product we built has changed the medical sector and what we have planned for this year will establish us as the defacto healthcare platform in the US."

Practice Fusion was also recently selected as a finalist in the "Biggest Social Impact" category of the annual TechCrunch Crunchies Award. To vote or view the other categories and nominees, please visit: http://crunchies2011.techcrunch.com/vote/
