Discussing: "Information Technology as a Cornerstone of Patient Wait Times Guarantees"

New and innovative information technology in our health care system has significantly improved access, wait times, and quality of care. The tremendous advancements in this field have helped to make Canadians healthier and more satisfied that the care they need will be available, when and where they need it.
