The Health Council recently released the latest bulletin in the Canadian Health Care Matters Series with survey results from the 2012 Commonwealth Fund International Health Policy Survey of primary care doctors.
We found that adoption of electronic medical records has more than doubled nationally since 2006, with over half (57%) of primary care physicians now using computerized patient charts. However, this number varies widely across provinces (from 26% in New Brunswick to 74% in Alberta), and overall we still rank second last among the 10 countries surveyed.
For this webinar, we’re bringing together three expert panelists to talk about care coordination among health care providers and the use of information technology in health care settings;
Dr. Michael Moffatt, Executive Director of Research and Applied Learning for the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority and Health Council of Canada councillor
Dr. Jennifer Zelmer, Senior Vice President, Clinical Adoption and Innovation at Canada Health Infoway
Robert Salois, Quebec Health and Welfare Commissioner
