Telus Health Solutions announced this morning that they have acquired Wolf Medical Systems. The acquisition will create a new line of business within Telus Health Solutions called Physician Solutions. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Wolf Medical Systems is Canada’s largest and fastest-growing cloud-based EMR provider. Since 2010, over 11 million patient visits have been documented by physicians using Wolf EMR.
On a typical day, physicians using the system see more than 26,000 patients, prescribe 23,000 medications and review 166,000 lab results. Now, access to EMRs can be further expanded by combining Wolf’s hosted, cloud-based technology with TELUS’ secure, wireless and wireline broadband communications networks.
The addition of Wolf EMR (for physicians) rounds out Telus’ portfolio of world class health record solutions including Telus health space (for the home and on the go via a smartphone or tablet) and Oacis (for healthcare institutions).
Telus is now positioned to facilitate the integration of health records from the home, to the doctor’s office and to the hospital; ensuring critical health information is available to care providers over secure, wireline and wireless broadband networks wherever and whenever they need it.
