In this episode of the Alberta Doctors' Digest podcast, editor-in-chief Marvin Polis speaks to Dr. Carla Laidlaw about how CII/CPAR is being used in the Westview PCN to improve continuity of care.
Community Information Integration and Central Patient Attachment Registry (CII/CPAR) enhances communication amongst providers by enabling the sharing of important health care information across the province. This is made possible by a two-way connection between clinic electronic medical records (EMRs) and Alberta Netcare.
Community Information Integration (CII) is a system that allows physicians to send their community-based consult letters to Alberta Netcare.
Central Patient Attachment Registry (CPAR) identifies relationships between patients and their primary provider and sends e-notifications to providers when their patients are seen in the emergency department or have a hospital admission.
