ABSTRACT
The article reports on the failure of the Canadian government to release the funding for the implementation of electronic health records (EHR). It mentions that such failure has compromised the initiatives to improve physician's taking up of EHR. It says that one reason for the delay in the release of such fund is prioritization. It also states that the delay in the release of the fund will affect not only the patients but the opportunity of the system to achieve cost-savings.
