KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/11/09 -- Mr. Al Hildebrandt, President and CEO of QHR Technologies Inc. ("QHR" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: QHR) is pleased to announce that on May 7, 2009 its subsidiary Optimed Software Corporation ("Optimed") has signed a Joint Product and Marketing Partner Agreement (the "Agreement") with Calgary Scientific Inc.
Calgary Scientific specializes in advanced visualization software, marketed under the ResolutionMD(TM) brand. Calgary Scientific's products are accessible to a broad range of network and web-based users through standard web browser technology running on any browser compatible hardware or device, overcoming traditional technical barriers through advanced software virtualization platforms. Optimed has developed software that integrates with ResolutionMD(TM) to facilitate the distribution of medical x-ray and lab results to referring physicians' electronic inboxes, with integration from x-ray reports to PACS repositories, which are storage vaults of digital x-rays, to offer immediate desktop or iPhone viewing of PACS images via the Web. Optimed's software is marketed as Accuro® EHR.
The Agreement calls for Optimed and Calgary Scientific to develop a long-term product development relationship and to market the integrated software to strategic accounts in North America.
In announcing the Agreement Mr. Hildebrandt said, "The integration of ResolutionMD(TM) and Accuro® EHR has created a solution that can provide seamless delivery of diagnostic lab and x-ray reports to patients' family or specialist physicians over the Web. It has the potential to greatly reduce the time to distribute these results from laboratories and radiologists to referring physicians, and to make an important step forward in reducing patient wait times and realizing the goal of a portable Electronic Health Record for all Canadians."
Pierre Lemire, President of Calgary Scientific said, "Optimed's Accuro® EHR software provides the link between Calgary Scientific's software and the referring physicians, and we look forward to developing this new market opportunity together with Optimed."
