In Canada, research shows that improving access to patients’ health information by using products like the Rati-Fi System, benefits their overall health. It’s all about education and engagement and digital tools are making this happen.
When Canadians have access to their health information, they are better equipped to be an integral part of their health care team. Access to health information and other consumer e-services is leading to some important health care benefits for Canadians and clinicians according to a body of international and Canada Health Infoway (Infoway) research.
“Consumer digital health solutions, also known as consumer e-services, are designed to improve Canadians’ access to their health information, encourage better communication with health care providers and empower them to be more involved in their care,” explained Michael Green, President and CEO at Infoway. “Consumer health solutions are one of Infoway’s priorities because we know that improving the patient experience improves patient health and will unlock value for the health care system.”
