Wolf: How to Send Encounters to Alberta Netcare

Participating in the Community Encounter Digest (CED) is optional for specialists.

Wolf Data Mapping

Data that Maps to Alberta Netcare CED and the Healthcare Data Repository

In the CII project, there are two places that information will be pulled to within Alberta Health:

Alberta Netcare (CED) and Healthcare Data Repository- Information is securely shared with other providers can see this information as it is published in the CII Community Encounter Digest (CED) report and copied to the Healthcare Data Repository.

Healthcare Data Repository- Information uploaded to the Health Care Data Repository is not visible or published. 

Conditions that allow for Encounter information to flow to the CED in Alberta Netcare

Wolf determines if a visit note is valid to submit to CII if all the following criteria are met:

  • You create a new visit note or modify/update a previous visit note.
  • The patient’s current encounter or chart is not masked as private.
  • The patient’s first name, date of birth and PHN are all recorded in ‘Patient Maintenance’.
  • The provider is live on CII and their first name is recorded in the ‘Physicians/Service Providers in Clinic’ window.
  • You signed and locked the visit note.

Keeping Encounters Confidential

You can prevent health information entered into a mapped field from being sent to Alberta Netcare by making patient data private or confidential:
Patient Maintenance window >Patient Data Restrictions >mask an entire patient’s chart, a section of a patient’s chart, or a specific visit.


If not all of your providers in the clinic are live on CII/CPAR, review Information Sharing in Partially Onboarded Clinics for additional information to learn what encounter information will be sent to Alberta Netcare.
