I was just reading the article posted by Acumeme on his EHR blog, about a story in The Star concerning eHealth Ontario. Although The Star article is way too one sided for my tastes, it does raise some interesting points. In particular it is interesting to see how eHealth is portrayed to the average Joe on the street. I would argue that SSHA was not a complete waste of money as suggested by the original article, but they sure had challenges in communicating their “value” to the average person. I am very biased about the value of investing in eHealth technologies, but maybe we all could do a better job in clearly communicating to the average Joe about the value of investing in these kinds of technology.
What does everyone else think about the article?
