Myth: There Has Been Little to No Progress in Digital Health in Canada


08 May 2017


Myth: There has been little to no progress in digital health in Canada.

Fact: 86% of family physicians in Canada were using an electronic medical record (EMR) in 2017, up from 39% in 2009.

An estimated 330,000 health care professionals are users of connected health information across all provinces and territories. At least seven in 10 Canadians can access some portion of their record now, up from two in 10 at this point in 2015.
