MD Physician Services responds to Healthscreen client requests

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
