Innovative virtual care solutions from Calian now available in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace

OTTAWA, February 1, 2022 – Calian® Group Ltd. (TSX: CGY), a diverse products and services company providing innovative healthcare, communications, learning and cybersecurity solutions, announces a new healthcare cloud initiative to operationalize the delivery of digital solutions across the care continuum. Corolar Platform and Corolar Virtual Care are now available in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, an online store providing applications and services for use on Azure. Calian customers can now take advantage of the productive and trusted Azure cloud platform, with streamlined deployment and management.

Calian, a Microsoft Gold Partner, is a trusted technology partner across the healthcare ecosystem. Delivering digital health solutions in a software as a service (SaaS) business model enables rapid deployment and reduces total cost of ownership (TCO) for healthcare providers by enabling a pay-per-consumption commercial model. This frictionless business model enables hospitals, clinics, labs, pharmacies, regional health systems, provincial agencies and the private sector to purchase these digital solutions through this global commercial marketplace.

“Calian delivers digital health solutions engineered to improve access to high-quality care,” says Sacha Gera, President, IT and Cyber Solutions, Calian. “Our innovations improve outcomes through better engagement across the care continuum, increase efficiencies in care delivery and protect critical systems and patient data.”

Michael Lonsway, Principal, Digital Health Solutions, Calian adds, “Our new SaaS model and the Azure Marketplace delivery make it simple and affordable for healthcare CIOs to respond to the changing needs of their communities.”

“The Microsoft Azure Marketplace makes it easy for healthcare customers to quickly find, buy and deploy partner solutions they can trust, all certified and optimized to run on Azure,” says Lisa Carroll, Public Sector Lead, Microsoft Canada. “We are happy to welcome the Calian digital health solutions to the Azure Marketplace ecosystem.”
