Are you interested in improving quality of care? Would you like your practice to be more efficient, cutting-edge, and have a distinct professional advantage? Do you want to attract and retain new physicians? Research shows, physicians can benefit from EMRs.
The Saskatchewan EMR Program assists physicians with the implementation of Electronic Medical Record systems. Through a joint funding agreement between the Saskatchewan Medical Association (SMA) and the Saskatchewan Ministry of Health, physicians in Saskatchewan can receive on-going support to adopt one of the approved EMR software solutions. We can help you navigate your EMR decision from the point of consideration through implementation; you will not have to go it alone!
