EHEALTH AND INFORMATION MANAGEMENT PROGRAM - VOTE 1403

eHealth ensures that information and information technology are used to improve and modernize Ontario's health care system, and to improve the quality of and access to health care services. Health System Information Management and Investment provides health information which enables evidence-based decision-making for a sustainable health care system in Ontario. In 2008, the government created eHealth Ontario, an operational agency, to integrate the leadership and functions of the former Smart Systems for Health Agency and the eHealth program delivery. eHealth Ontario provides the information infrastructure required to facilitate the secure electronic communication and exchange of personal information among Ontario's health care providers and supports the Ministry's eHealth initiatives.
