Free Electronic Medical Records Service Practice Fusion Raises $23 Million

Practice Fusion, a web-based electronic medical records and healthcare community, announced this morning that it has closed an impressive $23 million series B round of funding. The round was led by Founders Fund, with participation from Artis Capital Management and Glynn Capital Management, as well as returning investors Morgenthaler Ventures and Felicis Ventures.
