The impact of digital health - Inspire others, Share your story

Canadian health care is ever-changing with many of us already gaining clinical value and seeing the benefits to our patients from digital health technology. This fall, Canada Health Infoway (Infoway), is launching a public education campaign that consists of identifying Canadians who already know firsthand the benefits of digital health and who might have a story or experience to share.


Knowing is Better with Electronic Medication Reconciliation

     The Institute for Safe Medication Practices Canada (ISMP Canada) in partnership with the Canadian Patient Safety Institute (CPSI) are committed to advancing medication reconciliation (MedRec), a proven intervention that prevents medication errors at patient transition points across the healthcare system. And while ISMP Canada and CPSI have made significant progress in raising awareness of this important activity amongst clinicians, Infoway's Knowing is Better Clinician Education Campaign is helping to spread the MedRec message even further.


Clinician Portal Connects the Circle of Care

In today’s health care system, patients often receive care from numerous providers in many different locations including their GP’s office, one or more hospitals, Community Care Access Centres (CCACs), or specialists’ offices, to name a few. But this information does not always flow seamlessly across organizations, which means clinicians may not have the most up-to-date information to care for their patients.


Showcase of Success: eHealth solutions are changing health care in Canada

Information technology is transforming health care for Canadians. From connecting remote communities through telehealth to fully integrated electronic health records, the path to better and safer care is unfolding for all of us. Here are some of the many examples of eHealth solutions improving care across the country.


The Thought Leadership Series

As we move towards the vision of having healthier Canadians through innovative e-health solutions, Infoway engaged leaders in our health care system to discuss how we get there and the unique opportunities for action that will pave the way for success. From health care CEOs to leading clinicians and patient advocates, hear what they have to say about the importance of information and communications technology in health care and its impact on all of us.
