KELOWNA, BC, July 25, 2013 /CNW/ - (TSX-V: QHR) QHR Corporation on behalf of its wholly owned subsidiary, QHR
Technologies Inc. ("QHR" or the "Company") a leader in the Canadian
Healthcare Information Technology sector has unveiled new branding for
its Corporate, EMR, EMS and RCM business divisions. The Company is also
launching a new website today, to reflect the new branding.
The fast-paced growth of QHR has included thirteen acquisitions in
Canada and the United States over the last ten years. Each acquisition
brought a company or assets, people and products with their own look,
feel, identity and corporate culture. This resulted in many identities
across the divisions with different, yet actively used, logos in
addition to more than ten different websites.
"This is an exciting time for our employees, our clients and our
investors. We are extremely proud of the new corporate brand that
brings us all together under one identity and we are all looking
forward to sharing our new image publicly," says Al Hildebrandt,
President and CEO, QHR Corporation.
Through a series of staff focus groups, online surveys and employee
interviews, the marketing team at QHR, in collaboration with an
external marketing agency, managed to incorporate the feedback and
ideas of the entire organization into the brand development process. A
great deal of effort was given to creating a succinct brand vision for
a company with such diversity.
"Upon arriving at QHR in October 2012, one of my first areas of focus
was to create an overarching umbrella brand that would encompass the
various divisions and products that QHR has to offer. We needed a brand
that could provide continuity while also affording the divisions'
opportunity for individuality. The launch of our branding kicks off a
new era at QHR that speaks to who we are as a company and unites the
multiple divisions we have serving the Healthcare community," says Jim
Wilson, Vice President of Marketing and Communications, QHR
QHR is looking into the future with new energy and a great new look; the
new brand will provide a cohesive and clear structure for future
growth. As the company looks ahead, the intuitive structure this new
platform provides, allows the agility QHR needs to continue to lead in
the healthcare sector.
