Just Don't Call It E-health: A Program for Business to Consumer Internet Information Companies in the Development of Canada's National Health Information Infrastructure

Pat Rich

Abstract

While private Internet health information companies have numerous assets that could assist the development of a unified health information infrastructure in Canada, they face many obstacles in their efforts to become a part of this infrastructure. First among them is insuring the credibility of information and winning over the medical profession. Developing partnerships and collaborations between credible medical groups and private Internet companies is the best model to overcome these challenges and make these Internet companies an effective part of a national health information infrastructure.
