Oops, Practice Fusion Did It Again

On a side note, at my office here in DC, I saw an interesting patient this past week referred over from Bethesda Physicians, PC.  Not so interesting from the standpoint of her issue, but much more interesting from the standpoint that her records included a note from her PCP… wait for it… written in Practice Fusion!!!  I’ve been waiting for the day that, here in DC, I am now starting to get referrals from other offices using Practice Fusion.  So cool to see that familiar note formatting coming in from someone else for a change.  We get phone calls all the time from other offices, asking us how we like PF — and even have a visiting doctor and her practice manager coming over in person next week — but this is the first time to see another office right up the road using it.

Practice Fusion should be very proud.  They are starting to take off in the DC Metro area.  Quick, someone make a coverage map, like they do for cell phone companies!
