MARKHAM, ON, April 7 /CNW/ - Nightingale Informatix Corporation (TSX-V: NGH) ("Nightingale" or the "Company"), an application service provider (ASP) of Electronic Medical Record (EMR) software and related services today announces that its leading, web-based EMR and practice management solution, Nightingale On Demand, is now commercially available for use on the Apple® iPad™.

Nightingale On Demand for the iPad™ responds to the increasing need for physicians and healthcare providers to have mobile access to their patient data. Key functionalities of the application will allow physicians to review patient charts and lab results, respond to patient and staff messages, as well as manage the scheduling and billing of patient visits. This is a complimentary tool for physicians using Nightingale On Demand and has been designed with use in settings, such as hospital rounds or offsite patient management and homecare, in mind.

"We are pleased to offer Nightingale On Demand to our customers for use on the iPad™," said Sam Chebib, President and CEO of Nightingale. "Product innovation is a cornerstone of the Company's mandate. We strive to provide solutions that not only make EMR implementation easier for physicians but also leverage the most current technology available in the marketplace.  We are confident that this will be a significant value added product offering for our customers. As a result, we anticipate considerable uptake over the coming months."

Nightingale is leading the Canadian EMR market as one of the first companies with plans to launch an iPad™-enabled solution. Physicians and healthcare providers will have the comfort of knowing that all patient data entered while using the iPad™ is stored directly to the same secure servers Nightingale uses for its existing ASP EMR, and that no patient data will remain on the iPad™ device.

Nightingale On Demand for the iPad™ will be made available to the Company's more than 3,000 EMR users in Canada, as well as all new EMR customers.
