Just thought I would share with my readers the continued phenomenal climb in users and patients served by my EMR, EHR provider, Practice Fusion. They continue to impress the heck out of me in terms of their user number, which is now over 100,000 users strong. They reportedly add to this over 500 per day and 10,000 per month. The patient count is now up to 16,000,000 apparently. Considering there are about 312,000,000 citizens in the US population, that’s about 5.1%. Quoting from the above link, “the company started the year with 55,000 users (82% increase) and 6 million patients (166% increase).”
Just remember that a while ago I predicted that Practice Fusion would be the next Gmail and that eventually every doctor would eventually have an account. Looks like my prediction may be coming true. No wonder venture capitalists like Peter Thiel have been pumping in the dollars.
