Canada Health Infoway is working with various jurisdictions to invest in the implementation of registries that will accurately identify patients and authorized health care providers.
This program is establishing two types of registries in every province and territory:
Client Registry: A directory that lists all patients and their relevant personal information (names, addresses, etc.).
Provider Registry: A comprehensive directory of participating authorized health care providers; each authorized health care provider will be authenticated to ensure that he or she is authorized to access electronic health records.
How will Canadians benefit?
- More complete and accurate health information will improve clinical decision making.
- Patient health information will be managed more effectively, resulting in increased security and reduced administrative time and costs.
