Community Information Integration (CII)

Community Information Integration

The Community Information Integration (CII) project is currently in a limited production roll out. Patient information can now be uploaded from participating community clinics to Alberta Netcare and the AH data analytics environment. This new IT service supports secure transmission of discrete data elements as well as EMR specialist reports in the form of Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) documents generated by the clinic. 

The information uploaded to Alberta Netcare from the community physician’s EMR is set out in the Health Information Standards Committee for Alberta (HISCA) EMR Data Content Standard. This includes patient demographics, provider information, clinic location as well as diagnosis, clinical observations (immunizations, allergies, blood pressure, height, weight, etc.) and treatment information.

Future phases of the CII project will expand the scope of information sharing to include additional data elements and clinical reports.
