Just an FYI for all those companies manufacturing electronic medical records software.

It's now looking like Health Canada will rescind this regulation for EMR providers. A colleauge of mine spoke with a Health Canada representative and they will be posting a bulletin outlining the new requirements later this month.
So, for those who have already started the implementation....what does this mean to your company? Will they continue with their registration?
