Strategic partnership allows medical practices to focus more on patient care
AUSTIN, TX —October 16, 2013—Phreesia, the nation’s leader in point-of-service healthcare solutions, today announced that it is partnering with eMDs, a leading provider of electronic health records (EHRs) and practice management (PM) solutions, to provide medical practices with the highest level of integration possible to streamline the check-in process within their EHR solution.
