Alpha: Canada's First Name in Integrated Healthcare
Alpha Inc., our Canadian privately-owned parent company, was founded in 1971 with a focus on making the lives of healthcare professionals easier by providing them with a customer-focused source for quality healthcare services. We started as a small Ontario-based laboratory, and, over the last 38 years, we quickly grew into one of Canada’s leading healthcare services companies with over 350 employees and a broad range of integrated service offerings.
Advancing IT in Healthcare for over 25 years
For more than a quarter century, we’ve been breaking new ground in Information Technology for healthcare. Alpha was one of the first companies to recognize the potential of IT in the healthcare industry. This insight began our long history of innovative industry firsts.

Today, Alpha Global IT offers fully-integrated Clinical and Practice Management solutions which are CMS certified by Ontario MD and eligible for funding for qualified physicians in the province of Ontario.
