Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) October 10, 2010
Wolf Medical Systems, a leading national provider of Electronic Medical Records (EMR) software for physician offices and medical clinics across Canada, enthusiastically welcomes confirmation that seventy-six percent of the five hundred million dollars allocated to Canada Health Infoway in the Federal Government’s 2010 budget will be allocated to the funding of EMR adoption.
Canada Health Infoway is a not-for-profit corporation created in 2001 to facilitate the adoption of EMR in Canada. Infoway collaborates with funding programs instituted by the various Provinces and Territories to advance the use of Electronic Medical Records by the physician community across the country.
“This latest funding confirmation by Canada Health Infoway will further propel the tremendous momentum in physician adoption of Wolf Medical Systems’ EMR solution,” stated Dr. Brendan Byrne, President and CEO. “The growth potential of the EMR market is very exciting considering only thirty-seven percent of physicians in Canada are currently users of EMR technology.”
