Canadian health board is first to broadcast its meetings on the Internet

The Alberta Health Services (AHS) board in Canada has posted a video of its inagural public meeting on its website. The video provides an interesting insight into the conduct of a public health board meeting and is believed to be a ‘first’ in terms of health board openness and transparency.

The meeting, held on 13 August 2008, discussed mechanisms for public and staff input to the Board and administration, the Board member recruitment process, and general business bylaws and resolutions.

The video can be accessed here.
