Growth of the iEHR in Canada: User Adoption Landscape and Benefits

Interoperable electronic health record (iEHR) adoption has reached a critical mass of users with iEHRs available in all provinces and territories. Clinicians and other health care professionals in hospital and community settings are accessing important patient information such as lab and diagnostic imaging results, medication profiles, and immunization records. The overall user landscape represents about half of all potential iEHR users across Canada and historical trends suggest that the accelerated growth will continue over the next few years.

With more mature use of iEHRs, a broader range of benefits can be realized and the ability to support healthcare transformation increases.
