VCUR 2008 EMR Funding Extension Program Guidelines

The Alberta Medical Association (AMA), Alberta Health (AH) and Alberta Health Services (AHS) previously established a program to promote the use of electronic medical records (EMRs) by Alberta’s physicians called the Physician Office System Program (POSP). POSP ended on March 31, 2014.

The AMA and AH established the VCUR 2008 EMR Funding Extension Program to be funded by AH and administered by the AMA. It is in place to fulfill the funding commitments made under POSP for physicians using VCUR 2008 EMRs as of January 31, 2014, under Program Guidelines established when POSP was still operating.

The VCUR 2008 EMR Funding Extension Program Guidelines describe the requirements for receiving funding related to VCUR 2008 EMR solutions.
