Infoway to get their $500M

Looks like Infoway will be getting their $500M…at least according to the official 2010 Federal budget document

http://www.budget.gc.ca/2010/pdf/budget-planbudgetaire-eng.pdf

Pulled from the actual document (highlighting provided by me):

The Economic Action Plan provided $500 million to Canada Health Infoway to support the goal of having 50 per cent of Canadians with an electronic health record by 2010 and to speed up the implementation of electronic medical record systems for physicians. Canada Health Infoway has developed an action plan to strengthen accountability in response to the Auditor General of Canada’s Report of November 3, 2009. The Government is moving forward with the transfer of the $500 million that was announced in Budget 2009 to Canada Health Infoway. This $500-million investment will both enhance the safety, quality and efficiency of the health care system, and create thousands of sustainable, knowledge-based jobs throughout Canada.

  3. Mark,
    In addition to your highlighted sentence, I also suggest that the following sentence is also worth noting:

    “Canada Health Infoway has developed an action plan to strengthen accountability in response to the Auditor General of Canada’s Report of November 3, 2009.”
