Background for Patients of Canada
Patients are in most instances not in control and without easy access to their own healthcare information. The medical errors and negative health outcomes associated with closed information systems are well documented; including, undermining the system’s ability to deliver of patient centered collaborative team based care.
“Health Literacy” is a special term used to recognize a specific form of knowledge. In Canada, “health literacy” is defined as: “The ability to access, comprehend, evaluate and communicate information to promote, maintain and improve health in a variety of settings across the life-course”.
It may be easier to speak of health literacy as the degree to which individuals have the capacity to obtain, process and understand basic health information and services needed to make appropriate health decisions. According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, 60% of adults and 88% of seniors are not health literate.
Currently, there is no service that provides patients with their complete health history and gaining access to a patient’s complete medical history is problematic due to the many geographical and service provider silos that hold a patient’s health record.
