Client & Provider Registries

The Client & Provider Registries enable those delivering health care services in Nova Scotia to uniquely identify patients. The Client Registry provides a secure source of information related to clients of the health care system and their demographic information.

The Registries are integrated with hospital information systems, SHARE (Nova Scotia's Electronic Health Record - EHR) as well as the Drug Information System. Together, the Registries support Canada Health Infoway’s vision of a pan-Canadian Client Registry and eventual deployment of an EHR for each person.
