Practice Fusion is a cloud-based electronic health record (EHR), offered as a free Web application and used primarily by sole practitioners and small practices. The company makes money from advertising and providing market research data to pharmaceutical companies and other healthcare industry businesses.

The lack of a price tag, combined with Practice Fusion’s ability to offer doctors a chance to cash in on Meaningful Use incentive payments, has allowed the company to sign up medical practices at a rate of about 400 a week. Practice Fusion says 100,000 medical professionals are active users, accessing the software at least monthly.
Practice Fusion doesn’t have Stage 2 certification in hand yet, either, but is guaranteeing that it will by the end of 2013. “It will pass all the tests — we’re well ahead of that,” CEO Ryan Howard said in an interview. The guarantee is backed with an offer to pay up to $5,000 in EHR costs for any new customer who switches to a different EHR if Practice Fusion’s certification timing is not met.

Practice Fusion is benefiting from the advantages of offering a cloud solution, while many competitors are busy upgrading enterprise software, Howard said. He sees no reason for deadlines to be pushed back. “The vendors can complain about it, but they all took their checks. They got the upside, so they’ve got to be willing to participate on the downside, and the downside is risk.”
