Pediatrician Participation Options
Community Information Integration (CII) allows pediatricians to send encounter information and select consult letters directly from their community-based EMR to the Alberta Netcare Portal.
Pediatricians who act as a primary providers for some of their patients (i.e., have a panel) can also be signed up to upload a list of those patients to the Central Patient Attachment Registry (CPAR) - a provincial system that captures the confirmed relationship of a primary provider with their paneled patients. This allows the primary care provider to receive notifications directly in their EMR when one of their CPAR patients is discharged from ER, admitted or discharged from hospital, or has a day surgery. Patient-provider care relationships registered in CPAR will also display in Alberta Netcare starting in June 2021.
