Does anyone have an update on the Manitoba province-wide electronic health record system they called eChart Manitoba?

It went live in December at a clinic in Winnipeg and an emergency department/medical clinic at Notre Dame de Lourdes and now I believe there are a total of 6 sites.

Clinicians at these locations have access to provincial databases containing laboratory data, dispensed medications from retail pharmacies and immunization information for patients across Manitoba. As I understand it, the plan was to have 30 primary care clinics and emergency departments sites connected to the system by July of this year.

According to the Manitoba eHealth CIO, It's a slow growth strategy. Gradually testing and expanding. Smart but with the right partner a system wide implementation is still the best way to go.
