Purkinje and MEDFAR seal strategic partnership

 

Montreal, April 16, 2019 - Purkinje and MEDFAR Clinical Solutions are pleased to announce a major step forward in their growth and development. The two leading players in technological solutions for the healthcare sector have sealed a strategic partnership in pursuit of shared goals and their respective missions.

In order to focus on its regional hospital information system (Purkinje HIS), Purkinje has agreed with MEDFAR to migrate the clinics it currently serves to MEDFAR’s MYLE Electronic Medical Record (EMR) platform.

Over the past 15 years, Purkinje has devoted its energies to implementing clinical solutions that enhance and simplify collaboration between healthcare professionals throughout the care pathway. The partnership with MEDFAR will let it concentrate its efforts on Purkinje HIS, in which it plans to invest millions of dollars in the coming years, and remain the industry leader in hospital information systems in Quebec.

In MYLE EMR, clinics will have a an effective, comprehensive, collaborative solution that includes innovative new modules such as an online patient portal, an advanced intuitive data analysis module, and a connectivity module. These services are supported by standard-setting 24/7 customer service. Purkinje EMR’s flagship features, such as the clinical knowledge base, the tools for creating clinical notes, and the medical billing solution (Facturation.net) will be incorporated into MYLE EMR.

The partnership solidifies MEDFAR’s leading position in Quebec, with more than 4,000 physicians and 12,000 users for its web-based MYLE EMR, and supports its drive to expand its footprint to clinics across Canada.

“We are proud of this partnership, which will enable us to continue growing and to step up our investments in order to offer innovative solutions,” says François Carignan, President of Purkinje. “MEDFAR has a skilled team with a thorough understanding of the issues in the healthcare system. They are dedicated to developing state-of-the-art EMR software that dovetails with the ecosystem we are developing around Purkinje HIS and its advanced cloud-based features.”

“We are honoured by the trust Purkinje has placed in us and delighted to welcome new users to the MEDFAR family,” says Elias Farah, CEO of MEDFAR. “We are confident that our partnership will improve the experience for our clients and their patients. Matching Purkinje’s deep expertise and feature-rich HIS with MYLE’s innovative EMR will offer healthcare professionals powerful tools that improve productivity, support connectivity and empower patients.”
