Digital Health Week — Nov. 13-19, 2023
Want to join the celebration?
Digital health systems need to interact with each other across all care settings so that Canadians’ health information moves with them through the system.
Connected care, or interoperability, enables information to flow seamlessly between different solutions and devices. When different parts of the health system are interoperable with each other, they can speak the same language.
During this year's Digital Health Week, we want you to help us get the word out about the importance of a modernized health care system that is connected, equitable and accessilble.
What does connected care and improved information sharing mean for patients, clinicians and the health system?
89% of Canadians say they feel more informed about their health as a result of accessing their personal health information online.
88% of Canadian clinicians agree that improved interoperability would lead to better patient experiences.

Canadian Digital Health Survey
Every year, Infoway conducts a national survey to explore Canadians’ attitudes about and adoption of digital health.
Which digital health technologies are Canadians using and how do they feel about them? How have the tools increased access to care and improved Canadians’ ability to manage their health? Explore the results of our survey.
Canadian Interoperability Landscape Survey
Insights from clinicians about the current state of interoperability across care settings in Canada.
Infoway surveyed more than 800 Canadian clinicians about their ability to access information from other care settings to better understand the benefits, gaps and opportunities for connected care.
