FACTS AND STATS

According to the Health Council of Canada report, Rekindling Reform: Health Care Renewal in Canada, 2003 to 2008, governments agreed in 2003 to place priority on implementing electronic health records, to strengthen the safety and quality of health care. We are not on track to meet the goal of 50% of Canadians having an electronic health record by 2010. Governments must find ways to accelerate the adoption of these essential tools for health care renewal. Public support for these investments is strong.
