The acquisition, whose amount was not disclosed, gives Practice Fusion the opportunity to enter the telemedicine market.
Founded in Los Angeles in 2010 by Jordan Michaels, CEO, Ringadoc offers a cloud-based answering service that allows doctors to instantly access and respond to after-hours messages via web browser, Android or Apple mobile application.
In addition, it gives doctors the ability to triage patient calls, centralize communications and manage their patient population. Ringadoc’s service will now integrate into Practice Fusion’s cloud-based EHR for healthcare professionals.
The company had raised funding from FF Angel, Wavemaker Partners (formerly Siemer Ventures) and Telegraph Hill Capital.
Led by Ryan Howard, founder and CEO, Practice Fusion provides a cloud based healthcare platform that connects doctors, patients and data. It is used by a community of more than 112,000 monthly active medical professionals with over 81 million patient records. In April 2013, the company launched its consumer-facing platform, Patient Fusion, where patients can find and book appointments with doctors and access their medical records.
