Infoway is celebrating World Standards Day by recognizing the dedicated volunteers that contribute to improving digital health. 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 of it would happen without the tireless work of the many standards volunteers in Canada. On behalf of Infoway and all Canadians everywhere, thank you! Read spotlights of some volunteers leading Infoway Standards Communities on InfoCentral.
