Today, seven in 10 Canadians can access some of their personal health information online, which helps them better manage their health. Additionally, 85 per cent of primary care physicians use Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) and 82 per cent say they provide more efficient care with electronic records. Now that’s something to celebrate — which is exactly what we’ll be doing Nov. 11-17, 2019 during Digital Health Week.
The awareness week celebrates the difference digital health is making and is now part of the ACCESS 2022 movement which is uniting patients, clinicians, industry, government and other stakeholders to help create a modern, 21st century health system.
Celebrate by joining the ACCESS 2022 movement or by adding your voice to the conversation on digital health throughout the week via #ThinkDigitalHealth.
