US perception of eHealth in Canada

I tripped across this blog post today that offers a US perspective on the Canadian health system.  I found the summary of HIT in Canada to be particularly interesting:

  • “Is in the process of creating EHR for all citizens using a standardized format.”
  • “”Physicians can check medication histories and order medications online.”
  • “A Chronic Disease Management Infostructure (CDMI) is being created to predict trends and allocate resources more efficiently.”

Hmmmm …. seems that are our PR may be getting ahead of reality 🙂  I’m pretty sure, for example, that most physicians cannot order medications online save for a few pilot projects.
