InnoCare CEO Heather Shantora on CTV Morning Live

Canadians Want Accurate & Timely Care Aided by EMR Technology

October 20, 2017 | In the News | By: Kerrie-Ann Bernard

Heather Shantora, CEO of InnoCare joins the CTV Halifax Morning Live team to discuss a recent survey that finds Canadians want more technology in the delivery of their healthcare. Noting that wait times for specialists in Canada's Atlantic provinces is between 31 and 35-weeks, Shantora notes that these wait times could be reduced with the appropriate application of available healthcare technology such as EMRs like InnoCare’s Charting+.

Discussing the results of the Research & Incite Survey, Shantora posits that Canadians want the type of technology they already experience in other sectors like banking. Further, noting that banking information is just as sensitive and private as health information, Shantora says it is possible to use available technology to provide what 52% of Atlantic Canadians want, which is access to their medical records, better access to care, more information, and sharing of information between practitioners.
