QHR Technologies Inc. (QHR) (founded in 2000) is a Canadian healthcare technology company that represents 20 percent of the country's medical record market and its Medeo and AccuroEMR products are used by about 7,700 health professionals. In 2013, QHR sold Quadrant to Logibec Groupe Informatique.

In 2014, QHR acquired Medeo, a patient-doctor online connection application developer whose virtual care application is used by about 600 physicians in British Columbia.

In 2016, Olympic athlete Hayley Wickenheiser joined QHR as a spokesperson.

In June 2016, QHR announced plans to collaborate with TELUS Health to improve communications between healthcare providers. The companies intend to create secure electronic communication solution to allow the more than 23,000 Canadian physicians on their EMR platforms to communicate seamlessly, regardless of the EMR platform they're on.

In August 2016, QHR received a $170 million purchase offer from Loblaw Companies, the consortium owning Shopper's Drug Mart, Canada's largest chain of pharmacies. The board approved the offer and is subject to shareholder approval.
