No.
It was already included in the Terminology Gateway (with the HealthCareProviderRoleType pan-Canadian valueset)
Thanks,

Thanks Sisira. For additional context, was NL the jurisdiction that requested these codes?

Hi Finnie,

Apologies for the delayed response.

NAHCA-Health Care Aide and HSW-Home Support Worker included in the NL Provider Registry and are used with the "HealthCareProviderRoleType" valueset in Hl7 v3 messages.

The codes are mapped to the following provider types in RHA MIS Dictionary (source):
- NAHCA is mapped to "HEALTH CARE AIDE"
- HSW is mapped to "Home Care Worker", "Home Support Worker" and "Personal Care Attendant".

Thanks,
Sisira (NLCHI)

Hello,

CIHI is interested in understanding which jurisdictions are using the following codes and how they are being used (e.g. provider registry, health workforce reporting, etc.). We would also like to know if these two roles meet the needs of the jurisdictions (if not what may be the gap). Additionally, do the jurisdictions use the same terms as below or are there different role names that are used in the jurisdiction that are then mapped to these two roles.

NAHCA - A health care provider who assists nurses, hospital staff and physicians in the basic care of patients. They are employed in hospitals, nursing homes, assisted care facilities and other health care establishment, and usually serve elderly patients.

HSW - Home support workers provide personal care and companionship for seniors, persons with disabilities and convalescent clients. Care is provided within the client's residence, in which the home support worker may also reside.

Thanks
Finnie
