Nightingale expands services to U.S. care provider

MARKHAM, Ont. – Nightingale Informatix Corp., a Canadian and U.S.-based developer of Electronic Medical Record (EMR) and Practice Management solutions, announced a $1.6 million contract to provide its enterprise EMR application to the Center for Disability Services (CFDS), based in Albany, New York.

CFDS is an existing customer, utilizing Nightingale’s Entity Practice Management solution, and will acquire Nightingale’s EMR solution in order to better track clinical information on patients and improve operational efficiency.

Under the terms of the agreement, Nightingale will license its CCHIT-certified EMR solution to CFDS in return for approximately $1.6 million in license, implementation and training fees over the term of the agreement. Implementation will begin in January 2007 and is expected to be rolled out to 220 healthcare practitioners in phases throughout 2007 and into 2008.

“We’re delighted to be able to extend our footprint with CFDS and have the opportunity to assist them in deploying our leading EMR application throughout their organization,” said John Bodolai, VP of Sales and Marketing of Nightingale Informatix Corporation. “CFDS is one of the most prominent and widely respected facilities for disability services in the U.S., and we believe this agreement enhances our presence in the EMR market and further validates the cross-selling synergies inherent in our recent acquisition of Integrated Healthware.”

“CFDS deals with thousands of clients who have complex medical conditions. We required an EMR solution that had the flexibility to adapt to our unique requirements, while helping us remain at the forefront of quality of patient care,” said Pat Reilly, Chief Operating Officer of CFDS. “We’ve had a good on-going relationship with Nightingale and they are an ideal partner. CFDS will be able to deploy Nightingale’s robust EMR, which can easily integrate into our Entity Scheduling and Billing system. This will improve operational efficiency within our facilities so that our clinicians can devote more of their time dealing with clients and less time on administrative tasks and paperwork.”
