Delegates at eHealth 2011 have the opportunity to take a tour of the showcase and see how the pan-Canadian standards can be applied to improve health outrcomes.

This year Clarity Health Journal was introduced as part of the chronic disease scenario. Using SecureKey as a two-factor authentication and a glucometer upload for home monitoring and EMR document exchange, the scenario shows that consumers using home monitoring devices can share their health information securely with their health care teams.

In an every increasingly fragmented healthcare system the ability to provide Health Links is critical to th…
