PetalMD Acquires Workoptics, Continues its Canadian Market Expansion

PetalMD, Canada’s largest physician network, announces the acquisition of Workoptics, a scheduling solution used by physicians across Canada. With this acquisition, PetalMD continues to consolidate its position as the Canadian leader in productivity tools for physicians. The continually growing network now includes over 29,000 Canadian physicians.

“We are very happy with this acquisition. It meets our short term goal of consolidating the Canadian market for physician scheduling. With a third of all Canadian physicians already on the PetalMD platform, we are well on our way to connecting and improving scheduling workflows for all Canadian physicians.” Patrice Gilbert, CEO PetalMD.

This is the second acquisition in the past 6 months for PetalMD, which also acquired Medago, an e-prescription solution, last January. Workoptics users will now be able to benefit from a larger portfolio of solutions that not only includes physician scheduling, but also patient appointment booking in clinics, real-time hospital on-call lists and secure messaging for physicians.

“There is a lot of great innovation happening in Canada to meet the challenges of our healthcare system and PetalMD is an emerging leader. We are pleased to be part of the team and excited for what the future holds through our collective efforts.” Daniel Ramlogan, CEO of Workoptics.
