About 5,000 ECPs use his product.

Madison.com has published an extended profile of Scott Jens, co-founder of RevolutionEHR, in which he talks about how the company became one the fastest-growing in America.

Optometry practices were growing more complex in Wisconsin at the time as they “started to expand their patient services beyond regular vision care to include treating eye diseases and minor surgical procedures,” the news site reports.
