Canadian telecommunications firm TELUS has expanded its health care business division with the acquisition of Wolf Medical Systems, a Canadian vendor of cloud-hosted electronic health records for physician practices.

Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. Wolf Medical serves 4,000 users at 1,500 practices. A TELUS statement says client physicians on a typical day see more than 26,000 patients, prescribe 23,000 medications and review 166,000 lab results.

TELUS will place the software on its secure wireless and wired broadband networks. The company’s other health care products include a hospital electronic health records system, a continuity of care record, and a remote monitoring system for home health patients.
