CII/CPAR is the chosen vehicle to integrate community EMRs with two-way data flow. Community Information Integration (CII) is a system that transfers select patient information between community Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) and other members of the patient’s care team through Alberta Netcare. The Central Patient Attachment Registry (CPAR) is a provincial system that captures the confirmed relationship of a primary provider and their paneled patients.
CII/CPAR is an important technical enabler to improved patient care because it assists clinics in identifying patients where continuity of care may be sub-optimized. Knowing that a patient is paneled to another provider provides an opportunity to confirm roles and responsibilities in care provision. For PCNs and clinics already investing in panel management, CII/CPAR is the next logical step to promote a coordinated care management approach to service delivery and achieve better patient, provider and system outcomes.

Better Quality of Care
More Efficient Care
When patients have a longitudinal relationship with a single family physician, this results in better access, better quality of care, and reduced overall health care system utilization and costs.
When providers have knowledge of patients comprehensive medical information it results in better handoffs, better communication, and less duplication of care.
