Electronic Health Records in Alberta

Thinking of the challenges associated with creating electronic healthcare records for all healthcare users in Alberta. Typical government projects don’t have the best track record for maintaining proper security architecture, much less implementation. Starting to dig into this for my next paper, and I’m somewhat underwhelmed with what I see. Do we have a choice to opt out? Is there any way to ensure our health records don’t get compromised and exposed publicly? I guess I’ll be searching for some answers.
