Alberta Netcare: Created in Alberta for Alberta Health Professionals

How does the EHR work?

The EHR is not a single database, but rather a network of data repositories and information systems. Each has an important function and together they form the provincial EHR.

Clinical data is collected through point-of-service systems (in hospitals, laboratories, testing facilities, pharmacies, and clinics), and is sent through secure messaging to the provincial repositories and information systems. When a health professional logs on to the EHR through the Alberta Netcare Portal, and searches for a patient record, the portal retrieves all of the available information from the provincial systems and presents it as a unified patient record.
