Celebrating World Standards Day 2018

In celebration of World Standards Day, Canada Health Infoway wishes to give a shout out to all the great volunteers that contribute to improving digital health through standards. Over the years, we have seen great progress in the adoption and implementation of digital health solutions in Canada that make a tremendous impact on all our lives; and none it would happen without the tireless work of the many standards volunteers in Canada. On behalf of Infoway and all Canadians everywhere, thank you!

International Standards and the Fourth Industrial Revolution

Just as standards were crucial during the first industrial revolution, over 250 years ago, they will also play a critical role in the fourth. Read the World Standards Day message from the IEC, ISO and ITU.
