Now available: The Value of the International Patient Summary in Canada

The International Patient Summary—what is it, how are other countries using it, and is it valuable for Canadians? The answers to these questions and more are captured in The Value of the International Patient Summary in Canada, now available for download.

Developed by Digital Health Canada’s CHIEF Executive Forum and funded by Canada Health Infoway, this paper explores and articulates the value of the International Patient Summary for Canadian healthcare. The Value of the International Patient Summary aims to educate and inform the industry and to further the understanding of the clinical, patient, and health system value of the IPS as a key component of interoperability.
