Bay Area Sports Orthopaedics

SF-Based Practice Fusion Provides Electronic Health Records (EHR) Services to Doctors for Free

A few years ago, when orthopedic surgeon Dr. David Chang was opening his Bay Area Sports Orthopaedics practice in Oakland, he tried to go "paperless."

"I figured that as a young guy, tech-savvy, and being a small practice, I could do it," he recounts. "But I was wrong."

After a number of attempts, including purchasing a $20,000 electronic records system that was so bad he had to quickly shelve it, the Stanford grad returned to the "old-fashioned way -- paper and pen" to do his work.
