Vendor Certification Services

Infoway oversees a national program to review and certify digital health solutions for conformity to privacy, security and interoperability requirements, which helps to promote and protect Canadians’ personal health information. Buyers of digital health solutions can rely on the Infoway Mark of Conformity.

Launched in February 2009 and updated in 2012 and 2017, Infoway’s certification requirements were developed using accepted standards within the international and Canadian health information technology industry and enhanced with input and feedback from a broad range of health industry stakeholders.

The 2017 Edition is a harmonized set of privacy and security requirements, which has achieved an alignment between individual provincial requirements and international standards. These harmonized requirements have been designed to reduce testing redundancy by recognizing and leveraging the national Mark of Conformity awarded to successful digital health solutions.

Infoway introduces Release 2 of Infoway’s 2017 Edition of Privacy and Security Certification Requirements (2017 Edition Release 2). Release 2 includes revisions to twenty-three 2017 Edition requirements to provide clarity, in response to our early adopters’ and clients’ feedback.
