- “There is no such thing as bad publicity except your own obituary. “
- Brendan Behan (Irish author & dramatist; 1923 – 1964)
The folks at eHealth Ontario probably don’t agree with Mr. Behan this morning. For nearly two weeks eHealth Ontario has the subject of intense media and political scrutiny, culiminating yesterday with the departure of President and CEO, Sarah Kramer. With media attention focused on eHealth Ontario’s spending practices, I’d like to take a step back and discuss eHealth Ontario’s mandate and strategic plan.
Management and spending practices aside, do you think that eHealth Ontario is good idea? Do we need to spend money on eHealth? If so, is an agency such as eHealth Ontario needed to advance an eHealth agenda for Ontario?
