I am not completely clear on what Infoway is responsible for?

Canada Health Infoway (Infoway) is a non profit, independent organization funded by the federal government. Infoway jointly invests with every province and territory to accelerate the development and adoption of information and communications technology projects in Canada. Fully respecting patient confidentiality, these secure systems will provide clinicians and patients with the information they need to better support safe care decisions and manage their own health. Accessing this vital information quickly will help foster a more modern and sustainable health care system for all Canadians. Here is their site

What will the Clinical Council be responsible for?

September 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJamie C.

According to their site, the Clinical Council is expected to provide strategic advice on Infoway’s overall clinical engagement strategy, reach out to clinical leaders across the country, and suggest suitable candidates to participate in the organization’s projects. This interdisciplinary group is intended to complement Infoway’s current reference groups for physicians, nurses, and pharmacists; provincial/territorial clinical peer support networks funded by Infoway; investments in supporting the needs of clinicians-in-training; and, project-specific clinical advisory mechanisms.
