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?
