Practice Fusion Helps Cardiologists Bridge the Digital Divide
Date:2/20/2013

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In honor of American Heart Month, Practice Fusion, the free, web-based electronic medical record (EMR) platform, is celebrating its work with cardiologists across the country to combat heart disease, the leading cause of death among men and women in the US (source: CDC). Cardiologists have one of the highest rates of EMR adoption among all specialties, with 15 percent having already attested for Meaningful Use incentives. Cardiology is a top specialty among the 150,000 medical professionals who use Practice Fusion's free EMR system.

Practice Fusion's tech-savvy cardiologists can be found across the country, with the highest concentration in California, Florida, New York, Texas and New Jersey. Thanks to Practice Fusion, these doctors are able to deliver the most modern, connected and safe care possible.

In addition to delivering 21st-century technology to cardiologists' offices, Practice Fusion has conducted its own heart health research with the use of de-identified clinical data. Studies conducted by the Practice Fusion Research Division include "Kids Grow Up so Fast These Days," a look at the prevalence of so-called "adult onset" diseases including hypertension in children and "Do you have the heart of an Olympian?," an interactive data visualization that compares heart rates to those of Olympic athletes.

"Practice Fusion has been a great help to my practice," said Martin O'Hara, MD, a nuclear cardiologist based in Arlington, VA. "Practice Fusion's design allowed me to implement the electronic record at my own pace which meant I never sacrificed the quality of my patients' care in order to set up a complicated legacy system. The excellent e-prescribing alone is worth the transition--and of course, the price can't be beat."   

Attendees of the upcoming American College of Cardiology conference in San Francisco on March 9-11 are invited to stop by Practice Fusion's headquarters, located just off of Union Square, to meet the team for a breakfast at 8:30 a.m. PT on Monday, March 11. For more information and to RSVP for this event, please email mfarrell@practicefusion.com.
