STORY SUMMARY: A report released today by the Auditor General of Canada confirms Canada Health Infoway (Infoway) has "accomplished much in the eight years since its creation."

The Auditor General concluded that Infoway is making the best use of its funds for Electronic Health Record (EHR) projects, established appropriate governance mechanisms and management controls as well as a risk management strategy.

"I would like to thank the Auditor General of Canada for her insightful review of Infoway," said H. Arnold Steinberg, Chairman Infoway's Board of Directors. "We appreciate her acknowledgement that Infoway is consistent with the purpose, objectives, and conditions set out in the funding agreements' it has with the Federal Government."

The Auditor General's report includes eight recommendations for improvement of Infoway including strengthening controls for improved public reporting, contracting goods and services, better documentation of project deliverables, as well as a technical recommendation related to ensuring conformance to standards.
