ASP version of Practice Solutions' clinical management software now fully-certified for physician use in Ontario

    CMA-backed solution offers additional choice of a hosted EMR

    OTTAWA, July 21 /CNW Telbec/ - Practice Solutions Software is pleased to
offer more choice to physicians with the newly certified Application Service
Provider (ASP) version of its popular Practice Solutions(TM) Suite Clinical
Management System (CMS). This follows OntarioMD's rigorous and comprehensive
certification process.
    Chosen in 2007 as one of two additional ASP solutions to be made
available to funding-eligible physicians, Practice Solutions Suite ASP
operates from a central location over a secure network offering all the same
features as the already certified Local Offering.
    Practice Solutions Suite(TM) is currently used by more than
3,000 physicians in 1,000 practices, managing two million electronic patient
records in Canada. Physicians in seven provinces are now using Practice
Solutions EMR to effectively manage their patient records.
    Practice Solutions Suite combines EMR with automated alerts for drug and
treatment conflicts; patient management and scheduling; chronic disease
management and automated billing and reporting, into a comprehensive,
easy-to-use CMS enabling medical practitioners to improve delivery of services
and devote more time to patient care.
    "The certification of our ASP offering means that funding-eligible
physicians now have even more choice when it comes to managing their patient
records. They can customize their EMR software to be in English or French, for
use on a Mac or a PC platform, and now be hosted locally, or via ASP," said
Rob Thorpe, President of Practice Solutions Software. "Practice Solutions
Suite is the only Canadian product to offer this breadth of choice in EMR
software, proving our commitment to meeting the needs of Canadian physicians."
    Based on more than two decades of delivering CMS Offerings, Practice
Solutions Software designed and developed Practice Solutions Suite to exceed
the province's mandate for deployment of CMS to physicians.
    "With our local EMR offering already representing close to 50 per cent of
Ontario's EMR market, our ASP offering should further strengthen our position
as the leading EMR supplier, not only in Ontario, but across the country,"
said Thorpe.
    "Practice Solutions worked hard throughout the RFP process and has now
passed the certification process, the last milestone to becoming funding
eligible," said Brian Forster, Chief Executive Officer of OntarioMD Inc.
    Practice Solutions Suite ASP is backed by the Canadian Medical
Association and is designed for doctors by doctors.
