CII/CPAR is the chosen vehicle to integrate community EMRs with two-way data flow. Community Information Integration (CII) is a system that transfers select patient information between community Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) and other members of the patient’s care team through Alberta Netcare. The Central Patient Attachment Registry (CPAR) is a provincial system that captures the confirmed relationship of a primary provider and their paneled patients. 


  • Enables sharing of important healthcare information between the patient’s family physician and other providers in the patient’s circle of care
  • Facilitates sharing of consultation reports back to the patient’s family physician and other providers
  • Identifies relationships between patients and their primary provider
  • Allows for family physicians to identify and coordinate when patients are on multiple panels and, therefore, enables validated patient-family physicians information to be available on Alberta Netcare Portal
  • Supports notification of primary providers when their patient has a hospitalization or ER visit

Benefits of CII/CPAR

CII/CPAR is an important technical enabler to improved patient care because it assists clinics in identifying patients where continuity of care may be sub-optimized. Knowing that a patient is paneled to another provider provides an opportunity to confirm roles and responsibilities in care provision. For PCNs and clinics already investing in panel management, CII/CPAR is the next logical step to promote a coordinated care management approach to service delivery and achieve better patient, provider and system outcomes.
