Today’s been a big day in Health IT. First Kaiser Permanente has opened a very flashy Center for Total Health in DC. I took a tour today and lots of it is focused on the use of and extension of their Epic-based medical record (including adding lots of applications to that platform). But it’s open in DC in order to show the DC crowd what can be done. Meanwhile if you don’t have $6 billion lying around to put in a medical record, perhaps spending nothing may be a better option. And today free EMR “vendor” Practice Fusion got $23m in venture funding which will help them give away a whole more EMRs which will soon have a whole lot more applications attached to that EMR.
