Dave Barr presented his in-depth investment thesis on QHR Technologies (TSXV: QHR) at Wide-Moat Investing Summit 2016.

QHR Technologies is a leading Electronic Medical Records (EMR) provider in Canada. QHR’s Accuro product is the largest single EMR platform in Canada with 7,700 physicians on the platform (17% market share). QHR generated $29 million in revenue for the last twelve months(87% recurring) and has a 98% customer retention rate. QHR’s competitive advantages are reinforced through a positive feedback loop: the more users are added to the platform, the better the platform becomes and the more users it attracts. QHR is expected to grow revenue both organically and from acquisitions. Organic revenue growth comes from acquiring new doctors (1,000 doctors per year), upselling Medeo (visual care module) and additional new products. As a single platform, incremental revenue drives strong incremental free cash flow margins. Dave and Felix like QHR for its leadership position in Canada, strong base of recurring revenue, improving margins, multiple growth levers, and reasonable valuation for a compounding business.
