Orillia Family Health selects Clinicare to supply EMR

Clinicare Corp., of Calgary, announced that it has been selected by the Orillia Family Health Network, based in Orillia, Ont., to implement their OntarioMD approved Clinical Management Solution (CMS).

Clinicare’s top-ranked Electronic Medical Records (EMR) and Practice Management Applications (PMA) will be installed in late September. An aggressive eight-week training schedule to nine different locations is expected to result in improved sharing of medical records and patient demographic data. Each practice will maintain its own separate Clinicare billing system.

A single Clinicare database server will manage all patient data, enabling information sharing between Orillia FHT physicians and other care providers at nine different sites.

Secure access will be through the Smart Systems for Health Agency (SSHA) network. The implementation calls for a variety of workstations, including PCs (both desktop and wireless tablet), thin clients and Macintosh computers. The Clinicare solution will include both inbound and outbound fax capability, as well as EDI-Lab interfaces to Gamma Dynacare and MDS.

“We are a diverse group of 18 family physicians who were in agreement about networking and combining our patients into one server/database for EMR,” said Dr. Bernadine Murphy, lead physician for Orillia FHN. “With that mandate, we simply performed our due diligence and came to the conclusion that the Clinicare solution was the best available.”

“These Orillia physicians are very knowledgeable. They acted professionally and really challenged us throughout the vendor selection stage,” stated Dennis Niebergal, president & CEO of Clinicare. “We also appreciated the involvement of Orillia’s advisors as a project management resource. They contributed greatly to the communication process while remaining vendor-neutral.”

Clinicare makes a difference in enhancing the quality of healthcare by providing medical practices with effective computerized information solutions with superior ‘physician-driven’ products backed by exceptional service. Clinicare listens to and works closely with their Customers, Employees and Business Partners in a professional and positive manner.
