Emergis, Infoway complete preferred solution vendor agreement
Emergis Inc. announced this week that it has concluded a Preferred Solution Agreement with Canada Health Infoway for its Assure EHR Drug Information System (DIS) solution. The three-year Canada-wide agreement includes competitive pricing and conditions designed to accelerate Infoway’s program to support the implementation of interoperable electronic health records (EHR) across the country by governments and publicly-funded healthcare organizations. It recognizes that Emergis’ DIS solution meets Infoway’s criteria from a program investment perspective in terms of pricing and interoperability.

“We are very pleased that Emergis’ DIS solution has been recognized by Infoway and are proud to support Infoway’s goal of accelerating the adoption of technology to improve the quality and safety of healthcare for all Canadians,” said Mark Groper, executive vice president of Emergis.

Emergis and Infoway have negotiated pricing for a standard DIS offering to be made available by Emergis to governments and healthcare organizations. Those wishing to augment or customize the standard offering to suit their particular needs are able to do so. Selection of a specific supplier for a DIS solution rests with the government or healthcare organization.
