MEDFAR Clinical Solutions, the leading pure-play Electronic Medical Record (EMR) provider in Canada, announced today the acquisition of Plexia Electronic Medical Systems, strengthening its position as the third largest and fastest growing player. This acquisition expands MEDFAR’s operations to British Columbia and Yukon, where Plexia has grown to become the most prominent EMR solution for specialists and physicians. Both MEDFAR and Plexia share a common, innovative vision to improve healthcare quality and efficiency and both are highly complementary in terms of expertise, technology, installed base and user profile.
“We are excited to join forces with Plexia and delighted to welcome the Plexia team and new users to the MEDFAR family,” said Elias Farah, MEDFAR’s CEO and co-founder. “We are confident that our pure-play EMR strategy improves the experience for our clients and their patients. Matching Plexia’s deep expertise and feature-rich solution for specialists with MYLE’s innovative EMR will offer healthcare professionals powerful tools that improve productivity, support connectivity and empower patients.”
“We are proud of joining the MEDFAR team, which will enable us to continue growing and to step up our investments in offering innovative solutions and fulfill our novel vision of a complete ecosystem to enhance the quality of care,” said Wesley Wong, Plexia’s General Manager. “MEDFAR has a skilled team with a thorough understanding of the issues in the healthcare system. They are dedicated to build state-of-the-art EMR software that dovetails with the solution we are developing around Plexia EMR with its advanced cloud-based features.”
Plexia currently serves over one thousand physicians in Western Canada and its organization continues to expand and evolve its EMR platform by working closely with their clients as well as various government bodies and health authorities. Plexia’s continuous engagement with key stakeholders ensures that its EMR solution is in sync with the latest provincial initiatives and serves the dynamic goals and purpose of its users. Plexia’s market-leading solution reflects the customer focus of their highly dedicated and skilled people who have established long-term relationships with each client.
The acquisition accelerates MEDFAR’s expansion in Canada and increases its footprint to more than 6,000 physicians and more than 20,000 users. More than 1,500 medical clinics delivering 6 millions visits per year will be the first to be powered by the only complete EMR-based Virtual Care Management Solution in Canada.
