(PRWEB) February 25, 2011
Wolf Medical Systems, Western Canada’s largest and fastest growing provider of Electronic Medical Records (EMR) solutions for physician offices and medical clinics, are pleased to announce they are one of three new strategic EMR relationships announced by TELUS for their health space platform.
TELUS health space, powered by Microsoft HealthVault, is a secure and confidential online consumer platform and the first of its kind in Canada. TELUS health space will provide Canadians with one of the most fundamentally important pieces of the healthcare puzzle – access and management of their own health information.
“The fact that more physicians in Western Canada have chosen Wolf Medical Suite EMR to run their practice made us the obvious choice for TELUS when searching for a proven partner with a large base of user-customers who could benefit from the exciting capabilities offered by TELUS health space”, stated Dr. Brendan Byrne, President and CEO of Wolf Medical. “This year we will be offering the next evolution in EMR technology with our integrated Patient Portal. We are thrilled to include the breadth of functionality that TELUS health space offers as part of our Patient Portal strategy.”
Once integrated with the TELUS health space portal, the patients of Wolf Medical user-physicians will have the option to securely access and share health information electronically transferred from their medical file over any Internet connection from any location and at any time.
