Practice Fusion offers a unique product to small- and medium-sized physician practices, which was developed using Adobe Flex 3 software for creating Rich Internet Applications.

Below is a press release contributed by MDNG New Media partner, Practice Fusion's CEO, Ryan Howard, to unveil the release of its new software applications, announced this week.

Practice Fusion announced the availability of its free Practice Management, Scheduler, Patient Management and Secure Email applications this week. “Today, Practice Fusion will change the healthcare industry by empowering physician practices in a way that has never been possible before,” said Ryan Howard, CEO of Practice Fusion. “Electronic Medical Records are widely acknowledged to be a critical component in saving patient lives and money. Practice Fusion is pioneering by being the first to deliver these applications for free and via the internet to physician practice.”

Practice Fusion offers a unique product to small- and medium-sized physician practices, which was developed using Adobe® Flex® 3 software for creating Rich Internet Applications (RIAs). Practice Fusion’s solutions are web-based, require no upfront costs, no extra hardware, no large software applications to install and rollout, and no backend databases, which are required by traditional vendors such as Misys and NextGen. Where enterprise solutions may take weeks or even months to implement, Practice Fusion’s services utilizes its exclusive "Live in Five" process to enable physician practices to be deployed and up and running within minutes. By eliminating these traditional barriers to adoption, the result has been one of the fastest growing physician practice communities in the US.

“I have used at least half a dozen physician practice solutions in the last ten years, ranging in size from a few users to thousands of users," said Vatsal Thakkar, MD and Clinical Assistant Professor at NYU’s School of Medicine. "Practice Fusion is the choice over others for of its ease of use, graphical interface, available support, and, most importantly, its cost-effectiveness.”

“Practice Fusion’s application is one of the most elegant solutions I have seen in an application. It is easy to navigate and learn, and natively leads the user to accomplish the task,” said Dr Joseph of Nephrology “The Adobe Flex framework for creating RIAs is ideally suited for software-as-a-service (SAAS) applications,” said Dave Gruber, group product marketing manager of Adobe Flex at Adobe. “Practice Fusion customers will gain a rich user experience with the flexibility to access the service from any major browser or operating system without having to manage local software installations.”
