“When we invested in Practice Fusion, digital health was at a tipping point. It was clear to us that Practice Fusion had the potential to be a true disruptor and to generate significant revenue,” said Beth Seidenberg, MD, general partner, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. “The progress since the start of the year proves that Practice Fusion is a long-term player that can transform the healthcare ecosystem while staying true to its mission of bringing together physicians, patients and other healthcare participants to improve patient outcomes and save lives.”
“Delivering this connectivity in ambulatory medical practice settings is critical,” said Ryan Howard, founder and CEO, Practice Fusion. “Since clinical lab results guide 70 percent of medical decisions made by healthcare providers, the connections that Practice Fusion enables can help ensure that the necessary players have the information they need from laboratory tests, CT scans, X-rays and more to deliver critical patient care.” (American Clinical Laboratory Association)
