Practice Fusion is a free web-based electronic health record (EHR) company founded in 2005, operated and privately owned by Practice Fusion, Inc. in San Francisco, California. The SaaS startup provides physicians and medical professionals with free, advertising-supported EHR and medical practice management technology that includes charting, scheduling, e-prescribing (eRx), medical billing, lab and imaging center integrations, referral letters, Meaningful Use certification, training, support and a personal health record for patients. Practice Fusion was founded in 2005 by Ryan Howard, previously IT billing integration consultant for 12,000 physicians at Brown & Toland, and engineer Jonathan Malek. The first version of the product was launched in 2007 and initially gained little traction in the tough economy. The company began to grow in 2009 when the EHR and customer support were made free. Band of Angels and Felicis Ventures became the first major investors in the company in May 2009, followed by Salesforce.com in June, Morgenthaler Ventures in December 2010, and Founders Fund in April 2011. The company closed a $70 million Series D round of financing led by Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers in September 2013, followed by a $15 million Series D extension in December 2013 led by Qualcomm Ventures, bringing total funding to date to $149 million.
