TELUS Corporation, a telecommunications company, provides a range of telecommunications services and products, including wireless and wireline voice and data in Canada. The company’s wireless and wireline businesses are integrated to leverage the convergence of technologies to provide integrated solutions. The company offers its wireless and wireline services primarily through TCC. The company offers prepaid services to the Koodo brand for the first time, to complement existing Koodo postpaid offerings. The company extended a contract to provide connectivity services to a major power supplier in Alberta. The company continued to develop its position and expand its footprint in the health care sector, turning information into health outcomes for the Canadians and driving improved patient experience through the delivery of patient pre- and post-care education and medical records management. In 2014, the company’s health activities consisted of three lines of health solutions: Provider Solutions: The company’s provider solutions include electronic medical records (EMR) for physicians and pharmacy management solutions for pharmacists, as well as a series of patient engagement solutions that drive collaboration between patients, pharmacists and physicians (medication portal for consumers). The company has a presence in Canada as an EMR provider, reaching approximately 14,000 physicians. The company is also a provider of pharmacy management solutions in the country servicing approximately 3,000 pharmacies. The company’s Pharma Space, its platform that enables patients anytime, anywhere access to their drug profiles and allows them to perform online refills through the Web or mobile devices, has approximately 300,000 registered users. Payor Solutions: The company’s payor solutions include health claims management solutions that are managed directly at the point-of-service for public and private insurers. Payor solutions transport, process and adjudicate claims, providing processing support to approximately 13 million Canadians. The company’s eClaims solution is used by approximately 25,000 extended healthcare providers, including physiotherapists, chiropractors, vision care providers, and other allied healthcare providers. The company’s Health analytics solution is used by healthcare stakeholders to analyze the efficacy of programs and to optimize plans. Health Enterprise Solutions: The company’s health enterprise solutions support health authorities, hospitals and government with solutions, such as electronic health records, personal health records, eScheduling, eReferral and home health monitoring. These solutions enable access to vital data, encourage collaboration and increase efficiency across the healthcare continuum while empowering the Canadians to manage their health at home. The company’s home health monitoring and personal health records solutions are active in five major provinces in Canada. Approximately 44,000 healthcare professionals use the company’s OACIS clinical information system for hospitals and TELUS Health integration platform. The company offers TELUS Link, its next generation of push-to-talk (PTT) service through the company’s 4G LTE and HSPA networks and Wi-Fi. TELUS Link provides direct-connect, instant voice communication with an individual or a team, as well as standard wireless voice and data service, enabling members of a work team to connect in approximately 1 second. Customers could also roam in the U.S. and internationally with improved PTT through Wi-Fi. TELUS Link is Canada’s only PTT service through Wi-Fi and is a natural evolution of Mike service, which the company operates on its iDEN network. With the launch of TELUS Link, the company has ceased marketing its Mike service and would be turning the Mike macro network down in January 2016 as the company migrates its Mike customers to the new service. However, the company would continue to maintain its iDEN network to support its Mike private radio customers for the foreseeable future. The company expands Optik TV to approximately 550 channels, including approximately 135 HD channels and 50 commercial-free music channels.
