Experiences and perspectives

Browse through stories and videos shared by clinicians, patient, and health care administrators on the journey to better health care through improved connection and access to health information.

Canada Health Infoway's (Infoway's) Infostructure investment program supports jurisdictional projects that will develop common solution standards and architecture, ensuring that Canada’s electronic health record (EHR) systems are interoperable.

The Infostructure investment program has three core components:

  • Electronic health record Solution (EHRS) implementation support
  • Cross-program methods and standards
  • Privacy and security extensions

Under its Infostructure program, Infoway has developed the EHR Blueprint , a fully validated, scalable architecture that lays out the business and technical considerations and approaches that will ultimately guide the sustainable development of interoperable EHR systems in Canada.

How will Canadians benefit?

  • Canadians’ essential health information will be brought together by connected systems, enabling authorized health care providers to access, manage, share and safeguard patient health data.
  • IT Standards and best practices will increase the privacy and security of Canadians’ essential health information.
  • New health care Infostructure will reduce costs by streamlining workflows and reducing inefficiencies such as repeat laboratory tests.
