PracticeFusion and Google – the real story

March 21, 2007

The big announcement by PracticeFusion, a startup offering a free EMR in exchange for using the patient data to sell ads, is reported as a partnership with Google. Is this Google Health or something else. Reading the fine print, “Practice Fusion’s deal with Google is what makes a free medical records system possible. Google’s AdSense program will generate ads that will be displayed as the records system is used.” according to Doesn’t sound like Google is moving into  the EMR business with this program. Besides, if it was a high level Google partnership, won’t Google announce it simultaneously?
