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) Public Health Surveillance investment program supports jurisdictional and pan-Canadian projects that implement solutions for the identification, management and control of infectious diseases that pose a threat to the public's health.

In March 2004, taking into account the lessons learned from the SARS outbreak, the federal government assigned Infoway the task of developing a Canada-wide communicable disease surveillance system in partnership with the provinces and territories. 

How will Canadians benefit? 

  • A Public Health Surveillance program will better control infectious disease outbreaks.
  • New systems will enable authorized health care providers to quickly and accurately detect potential outbreaks.
  • Better systems for managing vaccinations will make it easier to treat infectious diseases.
