KELOWNA, BC, July 2, 2015 /CNW/ - (TSX-V: QHR) QHR Corporation ("QHR" or the "Company"), a leader in the Canadian Healthcare Information Technology sector, is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, QHR Technologies Inc., has completed its acquisition of the healthcare assets of Jonoke Software Development Inc. ("Jonoke"), including its proprietary Electronic Medical Record ("EMR") software and its clients.
As previously announced the all-cash purchase price is tied to an earn-out paid over a period of time during which QHR and Jonoke will be working together to transition Jonoke's clients to QHR's Accuro®EMR system. The earn-out is estimated to be under $500,000 over a three year period.
Jonoke is a privately owned company based in Edmonton, Alberta, with a current client base of over 750 physicians located in Alberta, Manitoba and Ontario which currently generates approximately $1 million in annual support revenues for the Jonoke products. QHR intends to transition these clients to its Accuro platform.
The Company expects that with the existing Jonoke revenue, this acquisition will be accretive to QHR's earnings in the third quarter of this year.
On behalf of the Board of Directors
