The Canadian Health Network

Timely, credible and readily accessible health information and resources are now available from a network of existing networks. A unique feature of the Canadian Health Network (CHN) is that it connects you to the latest local and national information and resources across Canada.

The federal government is supporting the development of a Canadian health information system to facilitate improved access to health information. As part of the Canadian Health Info-Structure, the

CHN is being set up with a web-site, that will soon have e-mail and fax-back capabilities. In the new year it will also include other modes of access (a 1-888 call centre and interactive voice response [IVR] for particular client groups).

One of the project goals is to enhance existing networks of health information providers and not duplicate existing services. Check out the new web-site at
