Telus Corp. is acquiring a Quebec-based provider of electronic medical records.
The financial terms of the deal with privately held KinLogix were not disclosed.
KinLogix provides a cloud-based system to capture, organize and display patient data in one record.
KinLogix represents 36 per cent of Quebec's electronic medical records market and its system is used in more than 200 medical clinics.
"By acquiring KinLogix, Telus is delivering on its national strategy, which will further the adoption of EMRs, an essential building block to an efficient health-care system in Canada," said Paul Lepage, senior vice-president of Telus Health.
"Combined with Telus's expertise and technology, the KinLogix EMR has the ability to share information electronically between physicians and patients, ultimately facilitating enhancement of care delivery and improvement of health-care efficiency, thereby positively affecting the lives of Canadians."
