Sponsored by Businesswire

Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and Evident, a member of the CPSI
(NASDAQ: CPSI) family of companies and a leading provider of electronic
health record (EHR) systems and services, today announced the execution
of a letter of intent to further their existing partnership by
leveraging key digital assets of both organizations. This partnership
will create a first, made-in-Canada, Hospital Information System (HIS)
solution. SunnyCare, Sunnybrook’s clinical workflow solution, and
Evident’s Thrive EHR platform will come together to offer a unique
alternative for managing hospital information and will establish a
Canadian Innovation Centre to improve patient outcomes.

The SunnyCare solution was developed in-house with the input of clinical
teams across the Sunnybrook organization. Together, SunnyCare and Thrive
will create a distinct system that will offer hospitals across Canada
another option for managing their information.

“Health information systems are increasingly becoming too costly for
hospitals and health systems to implement and maintain. This market
needs a cost-effective, made-in-Canada, HIS platform that meets the
demands of enabling quality patient outcomes,” said Dr. Andy Smith,
president and chief executive officer, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre.

“Combining Evident’s 40-year history and success in installing and
supporting over 900 hospitals with on-time, on-budget solutions, with
the proven clinical user-centered design of the Canadian based SunnyCare
system, I’m confident that we can deliver a unique experience for the
Canadian market that will help ensure the success of affordable
healthcare delivery,” added Sam Marafioti, vice-president, corporate
strategy and development, and chief information officer of Sunnybrook
Health Sciences Centre.

“We are committed to continually finding ways to improve our offerings
and make healthcare delivery better,” said Boyd Douglas, president and
chief executive officer of CPSI. “Partnering with Sunnybrook Health
Sciences Centre is integral to our success in bringing a truly
user-centered experience for clinicians in the Canadian market.”

Together, Sunnybrook and Evident will create a Canadian HIS Innovation
Centre, located in Toronto. The Centre will share best practices and
leverage each organization’s collective strengths in product development
and system implementations. They will advance quality patient care by
improving clinical workflow and provider usability across all care
