ASP Version of Practice Solutions' Clinical Management Software Now Fully-Certified for Physician Use in Ontario

CMA-backed solution offers additional choice of a hosted EMR (July 21, 2008)

OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 07/21/08 -- Practice Solutions Software is pleased to offer more choice to physicians with the newly certified Application Service Provider (ASP) version of its popular Practice Solutions(TM) Suite Clinical Management System (CMS). This follows OntarioMD's rigorous and comprehensive certification process.

Chosen in 2007 as one of two additional ASP solutions to be made available to funding-eligible physicians, Practice Solutions Suite ASP operates from a central location over a secure network offering all the same features as the already certified Local Offering.

Practice Solutions Suite(TM) is currently used by more than 3,000 physicians in 1,000 practices, managing two million electronic patient records in Canada. Physicians in seven provinces are now using Practice Solutions EMR to effectively manage their patient records.

Practice Solutions Suite combines EMR with automated alerts for drug and treatment conflicts; patient management and scheduling; chronic disease management and automated billing and reporting, into a comprehensive, easy-to-use CMS enabling medical practitioners to improve delivery of services and devote more time to patient care.


"The certification of our ASP offering means that funding-eligible physicians now have even more choice when it comes to managing their patient records. They can customize their EMR software to be in English or French, for use on a Mac or a PC platform, and now be hosted locally, or via ASP," said Rob Thorpe, President of Practice Solutions Software. "Practice Solutions Suite is the only Canadian product to offer this breadth of choice in EMR software, proving our commitment to meeting the needs of Canadian physicians."

Based on more than two decades of delivering CMS Offerings, Practice Solutions Software designed and developed Practice Solutions Suite to exceed the province's mandate for deployment of CMS to physicians.

"With our local EMR offering already representing close to 50 per cent of Ontario's EMR market, our ASP offering should further strengthen our position as the leading EMR supplier, not only in Ontario, but across the country," said Thorpe.

"Practice Solutions worked hard throughout the RFP process and has now passed the certification process, the last milestone to becoming funding eligible," said Brian Forster, Chief Executive Officer of OntarioMD Inc.

Practice Solutions Suite ASP is backed by the Canadian Medical Association and is designed for doctors by doctors.
