Canadians are Embracing Digital Health
Posted on November 19, 2015 by Tania Ensor
Canadians are no strangers to the virtual world, with a Canadian user visiting an average of 3,731 pages every month. It’s no surprise, then that Canadians also head online for health information, and, in fact, 72 per cent of family physicians refer patients to websites for information about their health care and lifestyle. But Canadians don’t just want general information — they also want access to their own health data as well, with more than 80 per cent saying they would like to take advantage of digital health solutions to view lab results and medication history electronically.
