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.
