Accelerating Progress, Achieving Value
In the spring of 2012, Infoway held its second pan-Canadian policy Symposium: Knowing is Better: Accelerating Progress, Achieving Value.
The purpose of the Symposium was to discuss how information systems can contribute to the transformation of health and health care in Canada, as well as key enablers we need in place – beyond the technology – to ensure this transformation contributes to an enhanced patient experience now and for future generations.
