Myth: Canada Has Spent Billions of Dollars on Digital Health With Nothing to Show For It


07 April 2017


Myth: Canada has spent billions of dollars on digital health with nothing to show for it.

Fact: Infoway estimates that more than $30 billion in benefits have accrued from digital health solutions since 2007. These benefits include avoided expenses, such as travel, for patients and their families, increased productivity for clinicians through access to digital tools, such as lab information systems, and increased value to the health system, such as avoided ER visits.
