Canada has pledged to spend a further C$22.8 million (US$14.8 million) on developing telehealth under the Canada Health Infostructure Partnerships Program (CHIPP). C$12 million is to be invested in the Health Infostructure Atlantic project that links healthcare services across the country's four Atlantic provinces. A key aim of the collaboration is to improve delivery of radiology and other diagnostic imaging services, particularly for rural and remote communities. The government expects the project to provide a blueprint for similar services nationwide.
