Abstract

This article outlines the development of an integrated information system for specialized alcohol and drug treatment agencies in Ontario, Canada. The system is being developed following a strategic planning process involving provincial funding ministries and coalitions of service providers. An overview of the system's development is provided and the implementation of one subcomponent, a client-tracking system, is described. Some challenges to the implementation of this component are identified.
