Ocuco acquires EMRlogic
Sunday, March 9 2014 | 00 h 00 min | News
Ocuco, the company behind the Acuitas Practice Management System (Acuitas PMS) and the Innovations Lab Management System (LMS), has acquired Canada-based EMRlogic, provider of the ODPro PMS and activEHR.
Ocuco will honour all software support contracts for EMRlogic and will fix certain bugs in the ODPro system; however, development on this system will be frozen. Ultimately, ODPro will be discontinued and replaced by Acuitas PMS. Technical support will continue for two years after the replacement has been released. Ocuco will also enhance activEHR features.
EMRlogic had been under protection from its creditors for some months. A settlement has been reached and the acquisition will save most of the jobs in the company. EMRlogic’s employees will form the core of Ocuco’s new North American software support team. “We are delighted to provide a safe home with Ocuco for our customers and staff who have invested so much with us over the past few years,” said John McCormick, owner of EMRlogic.
There are already 7,200 eyecare professionals in 35 countries who use Ocuco products, including the FYidoctors network in Canada. The company is now intent on increasing its market share in North America.
