Healthcare IT in Canada – Bimonthly Spotlight Series

As part of its expanded coverage of the Canadian healthcare market, Branham also prepares detailed bi-monthly reports on topics of interest along the continuum of care.  These reports provide a comprehensive review of the healthcare issues that either have an important bearing on the current transition to a more integrated healthcare system or form an important part of Canada’s healthcare system.  The discussions in these reports go well beyond the Digital Health NOW Monthly reports.  

The following provides only a snapshot of some the content you will see in these bi-monthly reports:
