provider (ASP) of Electronic Medical Record (EMR) software and related
services, today announces that its leading EMR and practice management
solution, Nightingale On Demand, will be implemented at the Trafalgar
Sheddon Family Health Organization, a comprehensive family practice
located in Oakville, Ontario which provides maternity care, urgent
care, minor office surgeries, chronic disease management, and x-ray and
lab availability on-site.
22 Primary Care Physicians and allied health professionals, including
nurses and nurse practitioners at the Trafalgar Sheddon Family Health
Organization, have selected Nightingale On Demand (NOD), the number one
rated ASP EMR in Ontario. NOD will be rolled out under the Ontario MD
EMR adoption program (www.ontariomd.ca) to Trafalgar Sheddon's six clinics across Oakville and Milton.
"We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with the Trafalgar
Sheddon Family Health Organization (FHO), said John Bodolai, Executive
Vice President of Nightingale. "The Trafalgar Sheddon FHO delivers a
high level of service to patients in their community and they required
an EMR Company that could equally deliver a high level of service and
support to them. Nightingale is the recognized industry leader in
customer service with proven success implementing its EMR in Family
Health Organizations (FHO), Family Health Groups (FHG) and Family
Health Teams (FHT) in Ontario", said John. "We are confident the
dedicated team of professionals at the Trafalgar Sheddon FHO will be
very successful in their EMR implementation of NOD."
"We undertook a very detailed and rigorous selection process, evaluating
EMR vendors based on product capabilities, innovation, financial
stability and their ability to deliver on commitments," said Dr. Mary
Zamora, EMR Lead and Associate Lead Physician at Trafalgar Sheddon FHO.
"We were impressed with Nightingale's vision, responsiveness, focus on
customer service and their professionalism during every step of the
process. "Some of our physicians are implementing an EMR for the first
time and others in our group are migrating from a legacy EMR
-Nightingale was very accommodating to address the needs of each of our
physicians and staff members."
The Trafalgar Sheddon Family Health Organization is comprised of The
Trafalgar Medical Centre, Sheddon Avenue Medical Associates and four
other solo physicians. Trafalgar Sheddon is not new to EMR technology.
Approximately half of the group was previously on a legacy EMR system.
The group worked with a third party consulting company to assess the
EMR market and assist in the EMR selection process. The Family Health
Organization is led by Dr. Kris Martiniuk who is headquartered at the
Sheddon Avenue Medical Associates practice, with Dr. Zamora acting as
