Sackville, New Brunswick, Canada, 2007/03/02 - Microsoft Financing and Scriptnetics agree to provide financing for complete electronic medical record installations that include Medscribbler, Tablet PCs, server hardware and Microsoft© software.
Scriptnetics announced today an agreement with Microsoft Financing to provide Medscribbler customers with a comprehensive financing option for the purchase of the Medscribbler electronic medical record (EMR) and Microsoft© products needed to support its installation. The recommended Microsoft Small Business Server or Microsoft Server software and the related computer hardware including Tablet PCs may be financed together with Medscribbler for a complete package.
"We are very excited about working with Microsoft Financing," said Michael Milne, CEO of Scriptnetics, "This removes the capital cost worry for the solo physician and small practice, especially for the doctor just starting up. With an upper finance limit in the millions it also helps the hospital or large clinic deal with their budget and cash flow constraints. Microsoft Financing rates and terms are very competitive. The current 6/50 promotion is a tremendous opportunity for new Medscribbler installations."
