Commerce Township, MI (Vocus) September 30, 2010

EMF Financial Services, a health IT consulting company, has teamed up with Practice Fusion to bring the latest technology to medical practices in Michigan. With the 2009 Economic Stimulus Plan allotting $44,000+ in incentives to physicians who use a certified Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system, this is the time for doctors to make the switch from old paper charts. Michigan medical providers alone stand to receive $1.25 billion in EMR incentives under this program.

For practitioners accustomed to paper charting, switching to an EMR can be a daunting task. EMF Financial Services offers Practice Fusion’s free, web-based Electronic Medical Record system to make the transition easy, fast and affordable. Practice Fusion’s free EMR helps medical practices schedule appointments, chart patient visits, e-prescribe medications, send referral letters, connect with labs and share medical records with patients in real time – all from a single interactive application. Being web-based, Practice Fusion does not require expensive hardware installations and allows doctors to securely access their data from any location.

“With over 20 years of experience in the healthcare market, we have a strong background in introducing EMRs to new users,” said Howard Fisher, CEO of EMF Financial Services. “Practice Fusion’s free, web-based EMR allows us to implement the system in a medical office under minimal workflow interruptions within seven days of signing a contract.”

As an official Premier Certified Consultant, Fisher has undergone extensive training on Practice Fusion’s EMR and has successfully transitioned over 50 medical practices. With extensive knowledge of the changing healthcare sector, Howard helps Michigan doctors adjust to new technology - tailoring his proficient approach depending on an office’s individual needs.

“Local doctors often need local help with their transition to computer medical record systems,” said Ryan Howard, CEO of Practice Fusion. “Staying current on developments in the health industry, Premier Certified Consultants like Howard Fisher are ready to address any questions and provide the necessary resources to make the EMR transition a smooth process from start to finish.”
