eResearch Issues Initiating Report on QHR Technologies Inc.

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 17, 2009) - QHR Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE:QHR) is a Kelowna, BC-based producer, marketer, and servicer of business software for the healthcare and social services markets. Its operations are conducted through two divisions: (1) the Enterprise Management Software (EMS) division, which specializes in workforce management software and financial management software targeted at medium-to-large healthcare and social services organizations; and (2) the Electronic Medical Records (EMR) division, which provides software for use in physicians' offices. In 2008, the EMS division provided about 66% of revenues, and the EMR division the remaining 34%.

QHR is a leading provider of proprietary workforce management and financial management software for the Canadian healthcare industry. The Company operates in all Canadian provinces except Quebec, and intends to enter the U.S. market soon. With the recent acquisition of Clinicare Corporation, the Company's EMR division is expected to be the largest supplier of electronic medical records systems to Canadian doctors. QHR enjoys a high level of customer satisfaction, with a retention rate of at least 95% for both its divisions. Recent acquisitions in both the EMS and EMR divisions should lead to strong gains in revenue and earnings over the next few years.

Currently selling at $0.60 per share, we have a 12-month Target Price of $1.60. We recommend QHR Technologies as a Speculative Buy for risk-tolerant investors.
