Practice Fusion continues to aggressively market to its ever growing user base, this time with the announcement of iPhone and Android apps under development. These were previewed in prototype form at the Health 2.0 conference just today. As of my writing this post, their press release was issued only three hours ago. Seems like they must be close to unveiling the apps since it’s been known for a while that these were on the back burners in beta but now a PR newswire press release was just issued today. We’ll have to stay tuned to see if they can last until Practice Fusion Connect 2011, on 11.11.11, before making the apps public. Given PF’s mantra, I’m sure the apps will both be free to the public. Can’t wait to have a native iOS app on my iPhone! It’s the next natural step in their aggressive attempts to dominate the EMR market.
