"A doctor wants to prescribe with an intuitive, easy to use and most importantly, a fast system. We conceived the ZRx Prescriber for these reasons. Those reasons are the main factors why we have been successful in Canada, becoming the largest e-prescribing provider in terms of doctors and number of scripts per year", states Mr. Yves Marmet, President and Chief Executive Officer of ZoomMed Inc. "We are proud to see that over 90% of physicians to whom the ZRx Prescriber has been presented have chosen it.", added Mr. Marmet.

"In our last press release we stated that we would seriously explore the US market. Attending the HIMSS Show represents our first strategic step forwards that objective. During those 5 days we will meet the major companies that already have an EMR (Electronic Medical Record) system and are looking for an innovative, web-based, mobile, easy to use and most importantly highly adopted e-prescribing tool to complete their physician offering becoming fully eligible for the majority of US incentive programs and part of the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009. It will be an interesting opportunity for us to explore all avenues to enter the US market with our ZRx Prescriber", concluded Mr. Marmet.
