Le taux de conformité des professionnels de santé varie beaucoup d'une autorité régionale de santé à l'autre et même d'un établissement à l'autre.

Hip replacement surgery: Patients are pain-free and loving life
Ottawa Citizen
Doctors and patients agree it's a miracle. After months or perhaps years of pain and immobility, the intense ache vanishes and in a few days or weeks, you're up and around and pretty soon life is back to normal. Hip-replacement surgery is No. 2 in patient satisfaction and lifestyle improvements, behind cataract removal, says surgeon Dr. Paul Beaulé, head of adult reconstruction at the Ottawa Hospital and a professor of surgery at the University of Ottawa.

Canadians want patient online healthcare options
The Battlefords News-Optimist
Eight in 10 Canadian adults want online access to their own health information yet fewer than one in 10 currently have it, according to a new study published in Healthcare Papers. The gap is just as wide for other patient online services, such as booking appointments, e-visits, or requesting prescription renewals or refills online; Canadians want them all, but most aren't getting them.

Barrette: Quebec's electronic records plan a 'disaster'
Montreal Gazette
As the provincial health department struggles to save $220 million under major health reform, its digital revolution has been a costly fiasco, conceded Quebec Health Minister Gaétan Barrette. E-health was initially rolled out as a paperless, integrated patient-care system, able to link at a click of a button hospitals, clinics, pharmacies, laboratories and doctors' offices. But nearly 15 years and $1.6 billion dollars later, Quebec's electronic medical records remains a patchwork of digital applications that often do not communicate with one another.
