CMA Resolution re: Alignment of Infoway Strategies

At the 2010 Canadian Medical Association General Council, the delegates passed the following resolution:

“The CMA will work with provincial / territorial medical associations to ensure investments made by Canada Health Infoway are aligned with and respect e-health strategies that are currently being implemented or developed within various jurisdictions.”

In the debate surrounding this resolution, one delegate stated that Infoway’s plan to directly fund vendors to meet interoperability standards is “counterproductive”. Another delegate commented that some eHealth agencies takes the position that “It is our way or no way” and noted that Infoway can play an important role in advancing local initiatives.
