( EHRs and disease surveillance systems in Canada
In today’s technology-driven world, communication often occurs through the use of electronic devices. From cell phones to computers, society relies on these electronic devices on a regular basis. In response to this trend, many agencies and governments are promoting the use of electronic communication tools such as electronic health records (EHRs). For instance, the Canadian government has funded billions of dollars toward the use of EHRs (Health Canada, 2009; Office of the Auditor General of Canada, 2010).
To prepare for this Discussion, review your Learning Resources. Select two Canadian disease surveillance systems of interest to you. Then, consider the implications of EHRs for each of the systems.
Post a brief description of each of the Canadian surveillance systems you selected. Describe how EHRs are used in the two systems, noting similarities and differences between the two you selected. Analyze the potential challenges and opportunities of using EHRs in a similar manner in your own country. Provide recommendations for how those challenges might be addressed.
