QHR's EMR Division First Approved EMR Vendor in Manitoba

KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 2, 2009) - Mr. Al Hildebrandt, President and CEO of QHR Technologies Inc. ("QHR" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:QHR) is pleased to announce that its electronic medical records (EMR) division, Optimed has been announced by Manitoba eHealth as the first vendor to achieve 'Approved EMR Vendor' status. This means that Optimed's Accuro® EMR is the first solution to complete the provincial conformance testing to verify that it meets all core requirements of Manitoba, including contractual arrangements of the RFQ process, to provide Manitoba primary care providers and community physicians with a set of Approved EMRs.

Three other 'Candidate Approved EMR Vendor's are still engaged in the EMR qualification process.

For more information, visit the Manitoba eHealth web site, www.manitoba-ehealth.ca, go to the 'Physicians' tab then click on 'Electronic Medical Record (EMR) Qualification Process'.

The RFQ process is intended to address the needs of all physicians (both family physicians and specialists) who provide care in the community. To the extent that it is in Manitoba's control, Manitoba will require that Regional Health Authorities (RHAs) select any new EMR systems for the use of RHA-operated and RHA-funded clinics from among the Approved EMRs.

In announcing the selection of QHR, Mr. Hildebrandt said "Optimed worked very hard to ensure that we enhanced our Accuro EMR solution to meet and exceed Manitoba's core requirements, and I am pleased to see our efforts rewarded. Since the February opening of our new QHR / Optimed offices in Winnipeg, Optimed has already sold and implemented 4 clinics in Manitoba. We look forward to supporting Manitoba eHealth in their continuing technology initiatives to improve patient care for Manitobans."
