MARKHAM, ON, June 24 /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 the process to achieving Class II medical device licensing for its Nightingale On Demand EMR system, as mandated by Health Canada, is well underway.
Nightingale is highly supportive of this initiative by Health Canada and is committed to completing the licensing process no later than March 1, 2011, which is well before the Health Canada deadline of September 1, 2011.
"Nightingale On Demand is the core business and clinical system for thousands of medical clinics across Canada," said Sam Chebib, President & CEO of Nightingale.
