Alberta first to offer medical information online
« on: October 17, 2008, 11:21:19 AM »

The province is set to become the first jurisdiction in Canada to allow residents to access the often sensitive and private information online.

The Progressive Conservative government plans to start slowly, at first offering only a bit of information such as vaccination records. However, the end goal is to post everything, including prescriptions, X-rays and laboratory test results.
