1999: HKN adds Calgary Regional Health Authority & expands into Saskatchewan
On June 1, 1999, Regina Health District becomes the first organization and first regional health authority in Saskatchewan to sign on as an HKN subscriber. By November 1999, the Calgary Regional Health Authority (CRHA) follows the lead of the David Thompson Health Region and becomes the second health authority in Alberta to join HKN.
CHRA employees can now access MEDLINE, CINAHL, and Evidence-Based Medicine from their desktops or off-site by ID and password. Previously, individual hospitals and departments throughout the health authority were responsible for access to health information.
