Standards Access Renewals to begin in March

Infoway continues to encourage the increased use of eHealth standards and standards-based materials. Standards enable the thousands of health care providers across the country to communicate and share health information in a consistent, safe and reliable manner. When used in digital health solutions, these standards:

  • Support members of the care team to accurately interpret and exchange information needed for safe and effective care
  • Facilitate clinical decision support through alerts and reminders
  • Enable data to be aggregated, with appropriate approvals, for clinical research, ultimately leading to better outcomes

Many of the following standards and software tools are available free of charge, and are accessible via InfoCentral:

  • SNOMED (international releases and Canadian extensions);
  • LOINC and pCLOCD;
  • pan Canadian HL7 standards (eg. CeRX, MR 02.05, CDA);
  • Message Builder, InfoScribe, HL7 Explorer and more.

*InfoCentral account credentials (user name and password) and annual acceptance of the applicable standards licenses and terms of use agreements is required.
