KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Sept. 26, 2005) - QHR Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE:QHR) -

Mr. Al Hildebrandt, President and CEO of the Company, is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary Optimed Software Corporation ("Optimed") has completed the development of its electronic medical records ("EMR") technology for use by primary care physicians ("GP").

The latest Accuro-EMR offering is driven by the success and adoption of the Company's EMR technologies by medical specialists in Western Canada. Sales momentum and customer adoption rates are growing steadily each month. Medical professionals in British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan are enjoying the power and convenience that Accuro-EMR offers.

Accuro-EMR applications support billings, patient scheduling, EMR, messaging and reporting through a unique integrated database. In addition to this, general medical practitioners can now utilize applications for chronic disease management, vaccinations, referral letters/forms and real time reporting. Although the roots of Accuro-EMR are in medical specialist applications, the GP will equally benefit from the streamlined workflow and powerful functionality that improves the effectiveness and efficiency of patient care and clinic administration.

The development of this new offering is to specifically address the unique needs of the GP. Medical specialists treat a large number of patients for specific medical conditions while the GP attends to a lower volume of patients more frequently for a broader range of medical needs. These are two different environments for applications design. While there are similarities in administrative functions, Optimed has diligently focused its new GP product on the specific requirements of the GP for comprehensive point-of-treatment data entry and chronic disease management.

Optimed offers Accuro-EMR to a Canadian market made up of approximately 60,000 medical specialists and general medical practitioners. Accuro-EMR is a more recent entry into the EMR market but as so; it is also a state-of-the-art technology utilizing the advantages of the most recent computer technologies. Accuro-EMR is a VCUR approved EMR product in the Province of Alberta where government subsidizes the cost of EMR systems for physicians practicing in the province. Similar approvals and financial assistance are expected in other provinces.
