It simply means that you now have more options when it comes to finding your patient. Instead of having to enter health card, date of birth and gender, you now have the option to search by health number, medical record number or name.
Why are we doing this?
The provincial client registry is now available for use, giving you access to a patient’s ‘golden record’. The golden record links a patient from multiple sources, such as the Registered Persons Database and Hospital ADT feeds.
When is this happening?
