Abstract

Centered on Practice Fusion, a free web-based electronic health record (EHR) company based in San Francisco, the Practice Fusion case examines the rapid growth of EHR systems in the United States from 2009 to 2014. The case discusses the challenges associated with adopting an EHR system (also referred to as an electronic medical record [EMR] system) from the standpoint of health care providers, both large and small. It also examines the benefits of EHR systems for health care providers, patients, insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies, and society as a whole. In addition, the case explores how Practice Fusion can best grow its revenue in light of slowing EHR adoption among physicians
