Practice Fusion and Dell today announced that they will deliver affordable, easy-to-use EMR technology to

doctors around the country. The Dell/Practice Fusion packaged solution uniquely serves the needs of the

small medical practices, especially those in primary care, that make up almost 80 percent of the physician

attention on serving patients and delivering the highest levels of medical care."
