INVAR Medical Technologies Selected as a Practice Fusion Preferred
Certified Consultant

Local health IT expert will connect NYC doctors with free, web-based Electronic Health Record system

New York City, NY, June 18, 2010 – INVAR Medical Technologies has teamed with Practice Fusion to provide local services to doctors interested in transitioning from paper charts to Electronic Health Records (EHR).  Doctors who adopt EHRs can qualify for $44,000 or more in economic stimulus incentives, while also increasing their data security and improving the quality of care. Practice Fusion provides a free, web-based EHR system and is the fastest growing EHR community in the country.

Studies have repeatedly shown that when doctors use EHR systems, they can spend more time focusing on the patients, as well as increase transparency in the practice to avoid medical fraud.  Supported by Practice Fusion’s EHR solutions, INVAR Medical Technologies can help local doctors go digital with their charting, scheduling, prescribing and labs. Under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, physicians who adopt "meaningful use" of an electronic health record system by 2011 can qualify for $44,000 or more in Medicare incentives.

“With the support of Practice Fusion’s free EHR, our customized technology solutions help practices make a quick and seamless transition from paper to electronic health records,” said Vadim Shelomyanov, President of INVAR Medical Technologies. “Practice Fusion’s free EHR allows us to grow our business with no increase in overhead costs, which is critical in maintaining viability in today’s rough economy. We’re proud to be helping NYC Healthcare providers access the latest technology.”

“Our Certified Consultants are helping us revolutionize the delivery of healthcare, one practice at a time,” said Ryan Howard, CEO of Practice Fusion. “With an army of consultants across the country, we are helping doctors practice good medicine in the 21st Century.”
