Canada Health Infoway works closely with its partners to assess the landscape of digital health and its value to Canadians and the healthcare system. They have produced some unique data that may be valuable doing research in the area across the country. In August 2016, Infoway contributed 2 initial datasets to UVic’s Dataverse Network:
- 2014 National Survey of Canadian Nurses is a quantitative survey of Canadian nurses to explore their access to and usage of digital health in nursing practice.
- 2014 National Survey of Canadian community pharmacists’ use of digital health technologies in practice.
UVic’s Dataverse Network is a highly visible tool used by researchers and is intended to help universities share publicly funded research data with Canadians and researchers worldwide. The Dataverse Network is an open source application for publishing, referencing, extracting and analyzing research data.
