Better Health Today - very interesting stores from Health Infoway

Canada Health Infoway (or Infoway)  does a lot of interesting things, while sometimes managing to stay in the background. Their sponsored website "Better Health Together" is digital storying telling about the benefits of health information technology. Although this appears to be just fluffy anecdotal advertising for the benefits of digital health, I suppose there is a need to educate the public. Try taking their Quizz to see if digital health is working for you. Now, this is where we really need to think about doing research on the effectiveness of ehealth systems, and not just collect anecdotes. Nevertheless, I was skeptical that I would see any benefits accruing to myself from the Quizz but was surprised to realize, having had recent encounters with the Family Health Team, that the Electronic Medical Record has been working for my benefit.
