AAFP and HealthFusion Partner to Deliver EHR Benefits to 120,900 Family Physician Members
(San Diego) – The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) has entered into an Agreement with HealthFusion® to offer HealthFusion’s award-winning software to its 120,900 Family Physician members. HealthFusion’s MediTouch® Electronic Health Record (EHR) system is a fully integrated, cloud-based EHR, Practice Management System, Claims Clearinghouse and Patient Portal.
“MediTouch offers the specifications AAFP members need. The system was founded and created by family physicians with the goal of enhancing the practice of medicine and improving provider workflows. The quality of the system has been recognized by numerous organizations and health systems. We are honored that we now have the opportunity to associate with AAFP and its membership”, said Dr. Sol Lizerbram, Chairman of HealthFusion. “Family Medicine is finally being recognized for its critical contribution to the healthcare delivery system and we expect the role of Family Physicians to become even more prominent in the coming years as the nation transitions to alternative payment models. With our easy to use interface that assists with government compliance programs such as Meaningful Use and PQRS and our NCQA Pre-Validated Patient Centered Medial Home module, the MediTouch system is already prepared to work closely with AAFP members to meet the challenges of our ever changing delivery system.”
MediTouch EHR includes an easy way for family physicians to participate in the new lucrative Medicare Chronic Care Management benefit and is an important solution for managing the chronically ill, optimizing the health of populations and, in the process, right-sizing healthcare spending. The simple touch screen works via the cloud to allow physicians to maintain eye contact with patients while digitally charting with their fingertip, which is actually faster than writing. The MediTouch team has worked closely with Family Physicians to engineer a Family Practice EHR system that anticipates their practice patterns and offers a flexible framework for custom, easy charting.
Founded in 1998, HealthFusion develops web-based, cloud computing software for physicians, hospitals and medical billing services. HealthFusion’s fully integrated solution includes MediTouch EHR (Electronic Health Record and Patient Portal) and MediTouch PM (Practice Management and Claims Clearinghouse).
MediTouch EHR was designed for use on mobile tablets such as the iPad, and offers a unique array of features that facilitate adoption of EHR technology. Features include a mobile Pure Cloud platform, cross-compatibility with traditional desktop and laptop devices, and an affordable subscription payment model. MediTouch EHR is Meaningful Use 2014 Certified, and thousands of users throughout the country place their trust in HealthFusion and MediTouch every day.

Approximately one in four of all office visits are made to family physicians. That is nearly 214 million office visits each year — nearly 74 million more than the next largest medical specialty.

Family medicine’s cornerstone is an ongoing, personal patient-physician relationship focused on integrated care.
