The Central Patient Attachment Registry (CPAR) is a provincial system that captures the confirmed relationship of a primary provider and their paneled patients. CPAR is a key technology enabling continuity of care in Alberta.

Continuity of care is about improving Albertan’s health through stronger ongoing relationships with their family physician/nurse practitioner (FP/NP) and team, increased information sharing, and enhanced care coordination. 

When Albertans have a continuous, trusting relationship with a family physician/nurse practitioner and team, benefits can include:

  • Increased access to appropriate care when it’s needed  
  • Better health for patients
  • Better quality of care
  • Improved care coordination
  • Improved sharing of their information between care providers
  • Increased patient satisfaction
