EMR Integration & API
One of the most exciting game-changers I could imagine. - Fast Company
Our free Electronic Medical Record system is a platform; a community that brings together the best EMR applications available for medical professionals. Practice Fusion's focus on EMR integration has already delivered video training through YouTube and Vimeo, connectivity to 65,000 pharmacies through Surescripts, interactive directions through Yahoo! Maps and access to 150 medical labs through partners including Quest and BioReference.
Next: an API for Electronic Medical Records
There are hundreds of EMR devices and solutions that could be valuable for the Practice Fusion community – more than our team could ever create internally. That's why we launched our API Challenge in October 2010 for over 30 development teams and why we're excited to be opening up our API to new developers shortly.
Creating a healthcare application marketplace
Our vision for the API includes both solutions for your practice's workflow and for your patients. Imagine prescribing a mobile phone mood tracker application to a patient on a new antidepressant right from their electronic chart and then being alerted if their mental health declines significantly. Or, adding specialty-specific features to your Practice Fusion account with just a few clicks. Our goal is to bring you a wide variety of new choices that work seamlessly within your existing EMR application.
Moving toward EMR interoperability
Meaningful data connection between various healthcare platforms is the ultimate goal of Washington's health IT investment. The Practice Fusion API is a first step toward future medical record interoperability; creating opportunities for seamless communication with hospitals, medical groups, patient platforms and more.
Just a few things the API can deliver within the EHR:
- Medical billing solutions
- Lab and partner connections
- Hospital interoperability
- Connections to digital medical devices
- Specialty-specific EHR features
- Mobile applications
- Telemedicine features
