Practice Fusion Launches New EHR Features for Endocrinology Doctors

The fastest growing EHR community in the country teamed up with physicians to create customizable charting templates for endocrinology practices

PHILADELPHIA, May 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Practice Fusion, the free, web-based Electronic Health Record (EHR), today announced the release of fully customizable endocrinology templates at the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) annual meeting in Philadelphia. With Practice Fusion's free scheduling, charting, e-prescribing and labs, endocrinologists can now instantly access clinical tools for their practice with no cost.


The new endocrinology templates were developed with the assistance of practicing specialists to facilitate the management of disorders like thyroid disease and diabetes. While the templates reflect endocrinology best practices, individual providers can also easily customize them to match their own charting workflow and patient needs.

"Practice Fusion actively sought out and took endocrinologist feedback seriously every step of the way," said Dr. Michael West of The Washington Endocrine Clinic. "Our teamwork on these templates will directly help endocrinologists deliver better care—and, best of all, new users can get started for free in less than five minutes."

The free EHR has gained popularity among endocrinologists. According to a recent survey, 95 percent of endocrinologists using Practice Fusion would recommend the EHR to a colleague. The free price tag was the most common reason for initially adopting the EHR (89 percent of respondents), followed by web-based accessibility of medical records (65 percent) and rapid set up (62 percent). Practice Fusion is also currently No. 7 on the CMS Meaningful Use incentive leaderboard for endocrinologists.

Since no two practices share the same workflow, Practice Fusion's customizability and specialty-specific templates make it a natural fit for specialty physicians. The endocrinology templates, automatically included in new accounts, add to the free, robust functionality endocrinologists already rely on, including e-prescribing to over 70,000 pharmacies and rapid lab integration.

Practice Fusion is presenting its EHR at the AACE Annual Meeting, May 24–26 in Philadelphia. Representatives will be available at booth 536 to answer questions and provide live demonstrations.
