Clinical software receives Alberta
CAMBRIDGE, Ont. – Practice Solutions Software Inc., a Canadian Medical

records, billing and scheduling software has been approved for physician
funding by Alberta’s Physician Office System Program (POSP) – a joint

This approval recognizes that the software’s applications conform to the
POSP’s Vendor Conformance and Usability Requirements.
POSP provides financial assistance to qualified Alberta physicians to

trial basis in 2005 with province-wide availability expected in early
2006. The company has established an office in Calgary, and plans to
open a second location in Edmonton.
Acquired by the CMA in 2004, Practice Solutions Software was founded in
1982 as HealthCare Software. It delivers software to more than 2,300
doctors at 750 medical clinics across Ontario. Approximately 1,000,000

made-in-Canada software solution.
