Karla’s story: As a nurse, Karla sees how digital health helps care teams make better decisions http://t.co/fF2tdEFlAj
Canada has made tremendous progress over the past 10-plus years in increasing the availability and use of digital health solutions.
Infoway, the provinces and territories, and our other partners have worked together to deploy core systems such as registries of patients and providers; drug, lab and diagnostic imaging systems; and clinical reports and immunizations. This has resulted in health care system efficiencies and improved patient care through faster access to patient information, a reduction in duplicate tests and better communication across care teams.
Electronic health record data is now available for 89 per cent of Canadians.
