Healthscreen Solutions, a provider of physician practice enhancement services, and Wolf Medical Systems, a provider of electronic medical records software, have partnered to offer their respective systems to physicians in Western Canada.
Under the agreement, the two companies will engage in joint marketing and sales programs to their respective customers. With many Canadian physicians already using the CallerMD service to manage uninsured services, Healthscreen will become the provider of this practice enhancing service to Wolf clients. In turn, Wolf will become the third party electronic medical record (EMR) provider to Healthscreen’s 1,000 British Columbia-based physicians, which were acquired in the Regent transaction in 2008.
Justin Belobaba, president and CEO of Healthscreen, said: We are very pleased to enter into this partnership. Wolf has a proven EMR solution, a strong brand and presence in Western Canada. Given Healthscreen’s track record offering value add services to physicians through acquisitions or partnerships, we believe this collaboration considerably speeds-up our expansion process in the west, while increasing our distribution network to over 8,000 Canadian physicians.
Brendan Byrne, president and CEO of Wolf Medical Systems, said: This partnership marks yet another important milestone in Wolf’s growth. As the only EMR solution selected or conformant in Alberta, BC and Ontario, Wolf is increasingly regarded as the solution of choice for physicians who require a complete and proven EMR solution for the long term. CallerMD is a natural extension of our offering, helping us deliver a more complete solution to our clients. We are excited to offer Healthscreen’s Regent software customers a Pito-funded EMR continuity path and look forward to working with Healthscreen and their clients in BC.
