Kareo Now Offers Free Electronic Health Records in Partnership with Practice Fusion

June 3rd, 2010 by Dan Rodrigues

practice-fusionNews about electronic health records (EHRs) and qualifying for government incentives from the HITECH Act seems to be everywhere, and as a result, many of you may be wondering what this means for your medical practice or billing service.

Today I’m thrilled to announce the launch of the Kareo + Practice Fusion integration.  You now have the option to use Practice Fusion’s free, web-based, ad-supported EHR system integrated with your Kareo account.  With Practice Fusion, you can manage electronic patient charts, send prescriptions with e-prescribing, and order and receive labs quickly with electronic lab interfaces.  Then, by linking your Practice Fusion account with Kareo’s medical billing software, you can seamlessly transfer patient and encounter information from Practice Fusion’s EHR to Kareo, where you can manage your entire insurance and patient billing and collections process.  No other integrated medical billing and EHR solution on the market is as easy, affordable and quick to set up.

If you use Kareo in a physician office, and you are ready to adopt an EHR to convert from paper to electronic charting, then you can use the Kareo + Practice Fusion integration to modernize your medical records and you may qualify for up to $44,000 in government incentives under the HITECH Act for adopting an EHR.

If you use Kareo for your billing service, then you can use the Kareo + Practice Fusion integration as a powerful sales tool for attracting new physician clients that may be drawn to a free EHR that qualifies for government incentives and seamlessly integrates with your outsourced billing service.

Getting started with the Kareo + Practice Fusion integration is easy!  For more information, visit the EMR section of our website, watch the Kareo + Practice Fusion training video, or download and read the Kareo + Practice Fusion feature guide.  You’ll find instructions on how you can create a new Practice Fusion account or link an existing Practice Fusion account to Kareo in less than 30 seconds.  There’s no programming required and no implementation delays.

Practice Fusion is an optional service for Kareo customers.  You are free to use a third-party EHR or continue to use Kareo for your entire practice management needs.  Regardless of whether or not you decide to use Practice Fusion, you can rest assured that Kareo will continue to focus on innovative ways to make your medical billing easy and to help you get paid faster from insurance companies and patients.  The enhancements currently under development at Kareo include electronic billing of institutional claims, dozens of productivity improvements and time savers, credit card and ACH processing of patient payments with e-statements and online bill pay, patient collection rules with new letters and statements, enhanced reporting, and much more.

At Kareo, customer feedback drives our service and ensures we build the features that matter most to people like you, so your input is critical to us. If you have an idea for a new feature, please email us at features@kareo.com.
