You might love your EHR if it:

  1. Listens to You- Practice Fusion users are encouraged to submit feature requests and suggestions through the EHR system directly to the company's product developers. Each request is reviewed, tagged, grouped and sorted by priority. Features of the EHR are implemented according to demand and range from simple usability upgrades to extensive new features.
  2. Is Easy on the Eyes -Practice Fusion was voted No. 1 EHR for customization and innovation by Brown-Wilson's annual Black Book Rankings. Feature releases every 3-6 weeks mean that we're constantly improving processes in the EHR.
