Community Information Integration/Central Patient Attachment Registry

What is CII/CPAR?

CII/CPAR enables physicians and their teams to share patient information to Alberta Netcare directly from their Electronic Medical Records (EMR).

CII/CPAR enhances communication amongst providers by enabling the sharing of important healthcare information across the province. This two-way connection between clinic EMRs and Alberta Netcare is improving continuity of care between the Patient’s Medical Home and Health Neighbourhood.

CII allows providers to send select patient information to Alberta Netcare including consult letters and information about patient visits to contribute to Community Encounter Digests (CEDs).

CPAR identifies relationships between patients and their primary provider and sends eNotifications to providers when their patients are seen in the emergency department, have a hospital admission or day surgery. Learn more about paneling patients.
