This case introduces Canada's IT-reliant healthcare system, using three real vignettes: an unconscious emergency room patient whose electronic health record (EHR) may have saved his life; a patient whose health problems and complex drug plan was effectively and holistically managed by pharmacists using a shared information system; and a bone marrow transplant patient who was able to remain in his remote community, and retain his quality of life, thanks to a Telehealth videoconferencing system. Discussion questions invite students to consider how IT plays a role in healthcare, the nature of deep integration', and why it takes so much time and money to develop effective IT for complex systems such as healthcare.
