Connected Health Information generated $1 billion in health system savings in 2017

The latest Infoway pan-Canadian study: Connected Health Information in Canada: A Benefits Evaluation Study, shows that the growing use of connected health information in Canada is producing significant financial and time savings benefits for patients, our health system and our economy.

Connected Health Information is information exchanged using interoperable electronic health records (iEHRs) and complementary solutions for sharing information between providers and organizations. It is improving the experience for patients and providers by decreasing wait times and unnecessary medical appointments, which increases capacity in the health system, enables providers to see more patients, and saves patients time, resulting in an overall increase in productivity for the economy.
