I'm conflicted by the report. On the one hand, electronic records can help patient care. The infrastucture is needed (just the other night a radiologist 400km away read an emergency CT for me) and I'm a believer in EHR. I don't believe they will revolutionize health care though. On the other hand, it looks like we have a greater chance of having and electronic health record for every Canadian before we have a doctor for every Canadian. Are we putting the cart before the horse?
