'We continue to focus our efforts on not only revenue growth, but more importantly on increasing our margins. To that end we have completed the expense growth that was required to capitalize on our acquisition of Healthscreen and our growth into the Ontario market and are pursuing margin growth by way of efficiency improvements. Our ability to capitalize on scalability must go hand in hand with ongoing revenue growth', said Al Hildebrandt, QHR Technologies President & CEO.

Total revenue for the third quarter was $7,009,873 compared to $5,496,797 for the same period last year an increase of 28%. This increase is attributable to continued organic growth in one time and recurring revenue in addition to added revenue as a result of the October 11, 2011 acquisition of Healthscreen.

Operating Expenses Operating expenses including cost of goods for the three months ended September 30, 2012 were $6,567,535 compared to $4,819,521 for the same period in 2011, an increase of $1,748,014.

This decrease in EBITDA and earnings in the quarter is largely attributable to the increase in operating expenses as highlighted above.
