Client Registry Standard

Client Registry Standards allow Canadian patients to be uniquely identified across the continuum of care through a jurisdictional Client Registry system. Client Registries are single directories or "white pages" in each province or territory that contain the most accurate patient demographic information including name, age, gender, date of birth and home address.

* 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.
