Excellent post Alan. I also saw the announcement by Telus. I'm wondering whether this is something they're doing because it will increase business or because it will improve patient care? If they don't consult doctors about what THEY want to achieve out of it, it will be a big expenditure that won't achieve a return on investment.

Also, they need to consult researchers and academics about they need. Contrary to widespread belief, there is a ton of innovation going on in primary care in Canada and it is mostly driven by researchers and academics. They are the ones who are training the next generation of physicians and they are the ones conducting the research that will drive tomorrow's standards of practice. Few people understand the true value chain in health care.
