Provider Registry Standard

Provider Registry Standards allow unique identification of Canadian health care providers across the continuum of care, through a jurisdictional Provider Registry system.

The Provider Registry is a single directory or "yellow pages" per jurisdiction providing a comprehensive and unambiguous identification of participating health care providers (physicians, pharmacists, nurses and other health care providers). Demographic information includes name, role, gender, Regulatory College licence number, and the different locations in which health care providers deliver services.

* Status Definitions

Canadian Draft for Use (CDFU) - The standard has been developed but it may or may not be implemented or be in use. The standard is considered ready to be used by early adopters: however, change is probable as stakeholders begin using the standard in implementations.

Canadian Approved Standards (CAS) - The standard is in use for the purpose(s) or context(s) for which it was intended. Only those parts of the standard that have been implemented or are in use can progress for consideration as CAS. This decision point signifies that the standard has reached a level of stability and is comprehensive enough such that major changes are not expected.
