OTTAWA, Sept. 28, 2011 /CNW/ - MD Physician Services Software announced
today that it is introducing an EMR Migration Support Program in
Ontario to financially assist physicians transitioning from their
current EMR system to PS Suite® EMR. MD is waiving migration fees and
will not be charging upfront licence fees. Migration will include all
clinical and demographic data ensuring minimal impact to physicians'
practices and patient care. In addition, MD is providing free clinical
workflow consulting and system assessment.
Initially developed in response to numerous inquiries from Healthscreen
clients left uncertain about the ongoing viability of their EMR
systems, MD has extended the program in recognition of other EMR vendor
viability concerns to any Ontario physician migrating from an existing
CMS certified EMR*.
"Owned by the CMA, MD Physician Services is committed to put 'physicians
first' and has done so for more than 40 years," states Brian Peters,
President and CEO. "Today, MD has unmatched financial stability—and
that's an important consideration when choosing an EMR, especially
given the number of vendors in the process of exiting the market."
"PS Suite EMR is the confident choice as the number one ranked EMR
software for funded physicians in Ontario. Designed and written by
physicians for physicians, it is continuously updated and adapted to
meet the changing needs of physicians." Paul Mason, President of MD
Physician Services Software comments. "PS Suite EMR was the first EMR
solution in Canada to offer an integrated health portal and our recent
ISO certification further demonstrates MD's commitment to continuous
quality improvement, ensuring processes and procedures are in place to
meet international safety and effectiveness requirements."
The EMR Migration Support Program is available until December 31, 2011. Ontario physicians interested in participating can
contact MD at 1 800 361-9151 or visit md.cma.ca/emr.
