AdvancedMD helps medical practices improve their productivity and especially their claims efficiency with insurers, to improve profitability and speed payment.

Intuit, maker of popular finance tools (i.e. Quicken, Quickbooks, FinanceWorks, FinanceWorks), announced the upcoming release of an open API and challenged the developer world: "Wanted! The Next Killer Finance App." Intuit President and CEO, Brad Smith, commented: "We're committed to unleashing the power of many to continue creating innovative solutions that improve people's financial lives."
