EMR Vendor Fair

Doctors Nova Scotia is hosting an EMR Vendor Fair on Oct. 21.

The EMR Vendor Fair offers physicians in Nova Scotia an opportunity to meet with the various EMR vendors in this province and see each product in action. As the eHealth landscape in Nova Scotia continues to evolve, we want to ensure you understand the opportunities available to you.

Each vendor will provide a one-hour product demonstration. There also will be time for questions, so that you can talk with each EMR vendor and familiarize yourself with each product.

It’s a great way to learn about the different EMR solutions available in Nova Scotia, compare functionality and determine which EMR is right for you.

Date: Saturday,Oct. 21
Location: Doctors Nova Scotia, 25 Spectacle Lake Dr., Dartmouth, N.S.
Time: 9 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.

A morning snack and lunch will be served. Giveaways, door prizes and other offers will be available.
