The Basics: A free ambulatory package, Practice Fusion is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) product that can be used on any device with a Web browser that supports Flash. Versions for the iPad, iPhone, and Android are in the works.

Used by 50,000 medical professionals nationwide, Practice Fusion is best suited for practices of one to 10 providers.

Practice Fusion makes its money by selling ads, though the company said they are discreet and "never interrupt the practitioner's workflow."

Value To Doctors: Practice Fusion is based on "the actual workflow of physician practices," making it intuitive and easy to start using. It takes just a few minutes for medical providers to begin using it. Providers can customize the standard medical history, as well as the charting and e-prescribing functions.

Practice Fusion has developed specialized features to help physicians in more than 30 specialties. These include modified templates, specialized charts, and frequently used ICD-9 codes.

Practice Fusion also has a personal health record system called Patient Fusion, which is integrated into the electronic medical record (EMR) system. It gives patients instant access to their diagnoses, medications, and immunization history.
