Canada nears launch of national e-prescription service

TORONTO — Canada is set to begin deploying a national electronic prescribing platform, called PrescribeIT. Canada Health Infoway, a federally funded, nonprofit digital health organization, said Wednesday that it has reached agreements to enable PrescribeIT in six provinces: Alberta, Ontario, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Newfoundland/Labrador. Those provinces represent 61% of the Canadian population. Plans
