  • Understanding the Plan and Progress

    The timely exchange of health information between clinicians is critical to providing better care for Canadians. This is why a Canada-wide initiative is underway to create a network of point-of-care and electronic health record systems that can connect and share a patient's pertinent health information with authorized clinicians, where and when it is needed.

  • Knowing is Better for Clinicians

    Web page
    Knowing is Better for Clinicians is an education campaign designed for clinicians by clinicians and was developed to generate broad awareness of the benefits of digital health in clinical practices and the digital health strategic plan for Canada. Health care professionals need timely access to the most up-to-date information when making a patient care decision. However, lab test results, diagnostic imaging, medication histories, and other pertinent information are often in many different locations and can result in duplication, extra administrative tasks, or relying on a patient's memory — ultimately leading to a delay in treatment or care planning. Digital health records bring together all of a patient's information and enables better decision making. Who is LEADing the way?
