I managed to get an invite to the big cheque ceremony (which didn’t, disappointedly, feature a big cheque) for National Research Council announcement of a grant for Cambridge company MedShare today. Full disclosure, MedShare founder and owner, Barry Billings, may have some relationship to me:

CAMBRIDGE, ONTARIO–(Marketwire – April 3, 2009) – The Honourable Gary Goodyear, Minister of State (Science and Technology), announced today a contribution to MedShare Inc. from the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP) to support an innovative research and development project.

“The Government of Canada is committed to building a competitive advantage for the Canadian private sector and supports these leading edge technology solutions,” said Minister Goodyear. “This investment in the development of advanced technologies, taking place right here in Cambridge, can one day make the lives of the sick and the elderly much more manageable in their homes.”

MedShare is a software company that provides mobile health record solutions to meet the needs of North American home health care agencies. This initiative will receive a grant of up to $284,500 under the IRAP program and allow the company to explore a new solution for the management of electronic health records for the home care sector. The technology will ultimately be delivered to clients by one of MedShare’s health care delivery partners.
