Leaders of the Vancouver Coastal Health Physician User Group met with representatives of the the Physician Information Technology Office (PITO) which was set up by the BC
Medical Association and the  BC provincial government to coordinate the implementation of IT products and services and disbursement of IT funds to physicians.

“This meeting demonstrates a commitment from PITO to work with
physicians across the province,” says Dr. Alan Brookstone, Physician
Coordinator of the PUG Strategy. “Sessions like this one will help to
guide provincial eHealth initiatives, and are essential to ensure
meaningful physician input into planning and decision making.”
