(PRWEB) August 24, 2010 -- Medical Arc and Practice Fusion have teamed to transition medical professionals from paper charting to Electronic Medical Records. Practice Fusion is the nation’s fastest growing EMR community with over 43,000 users on its free, web-based system. Significant health IT incentives created under the 2009 Economic Stimulus Plan are creating a booming market for the types of services provided by Medical Arc. Individual practitioners can receive upwards of $44,000 in federal incentives for using EMR systems. For example: a practice with two doctors, a physician assistant and a nurse practitioner could receive $176,000.

With Practice Fusion’s support, Medical Arc is assisting doctors in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and Florida as they switch to EMRs and work to qualify for the EMR incentives. Practice Fusion’s single, interactive application allows doctors to schedule appointments, chart patient visits, e-prescribe medications, send referral letters, integrate with labs and share records with patients in real-time.
“With the support of Practice Fusion’s free EMR, Medical Arc is helping East Coast practices make a quick and seamless transition from paper to Electronic Medical Records,” said Michael A. Marks, President at Medical Arc. “We have a unique understanding of the special time-sensitive needs of these medical offices.
