Digital health is transforming the way Canadians access health care as more and more are able to view their personal health history online, connect with their care provider through a virtual setting, and e-book medical appointments. It has also changed workflows for clinicians who are able to pull up information about their patients as needed and whose patients may now be able to also access their health information.
This has created some uncertainty and concerns — not always based on the facts — about what digital health means for Canadians as well as clinicians. Infoway would like to dispel some of these myths. Come back every week as we bust a new myth about digital health.
