When I was a junior in college, I broke my wrist. It was actually a lucky break because it healed completely… and my pathetic inability to cut my own food attracted a lovely lady whom I’ll soon be marrying. Still, the medical care that I received was abysmal. It started when the orthopedist told me that he didn’t remember if he could cast me before sending me for a CAT scan (that’s your job dude), but the most frustrating part was when I went to get follow up X-rays to see if the fracture was healed. I ensured at least four times that they were sending the X-rays to my doctor at home who I felt was more qualified to look at them. After waiting a few weeks for my doctor to get back to me, I followed up and he told me that the hospital never sent the x-rays (they just put them in a file). I called the hospital, and they told me that I had to drive over to sign a release so that they could send them to my doctor. Face meet palm. A lot of people’s frustrations with the healthcare system can be solved with technology, and that’s exactly what Practice Fusion is doing. They’re a San Francisco, CA based company that provides “a free, web-based Electronic Health Record (EHR) application to physicians.”

Practice Makes Perfect

Free isn’t a word that you expect to hear in the healthcare space, but that’s exactly what Practice Fusion is offering. The business is entirely based on advertising, which goes to show how valuable having a captive audience of medical professionals can be. Practice Fusion already has 150,000 practices across all 50 states using their software. The price tag has helped gain rapid adoption, but you can’t underestimate the value of Practice Fusion’s easy to use interface, unlimited support, and five minute setup. It all adds up to Practice Fusion’s being named the Best EMR For Primary Care in the 2012 Brown-Wilson Black Book Rankings. Since you probably aren’t all that familiar with what an EHR/EMR system does, take a look at Practice Fusion’s features, customers, and case studies. If you think this stuff is important and want to make a career out of it, visit Practice Fusion’s Internships page. Right now they have opportunities including:

Only the Marketing position says it’s paid, but my guess is that the other positions are paid too.
