Infoway regularly conducts public opinion surveys with Canadians as part of its commitment to listen to their perspectives and understand their needs. The 2016 Connecting Patients for Better Health report summarizes digital health perspectives of more than 6,000 adult Canadians collected over three years from four public opinion surveys.
The findings explore the level of awareness, understanding and perceived benefits of digital health, as well as current access and use of these services in Canada.
To further understand what Canadians want, Infoway held the Better Health Together Workshop in March 2017. Thirty-four citizen participants from across Canada came together to learn and share about digital health. Together, they created the Citizens' Vision for Better Health through Digital Solutions.
The vision realized through this Workshop was to improve the health of Canadians and to promote true and meaningful collaboration between patients, families, and their health care providers through universally-accessible, integrated digital technologies.
