Read our new Connecting Patients for Better Health 2018 report to learn about the latest availability, use and citizen interest in accessing their health information online as well as digitally enabled health services (e-services).
Both Canadians and the health care system benefit when patients can access their personal health records (PHR) online and use digital health e-services, according to a new study.
Fourteen per cent of Canadians have lost or damaged a prescription. Of those, 17 per cent (700,000 Canadians) decided to not fill their prescriptions as a result, which can lead to adverse patient outcomes and increased health system costs.
