• CPCSSN networks across the country collect health data at the point of care from electronic medical records.
• As custodians of patient information, primary care practitioners have agreed to allow the research networks and CPCSSN to collect health information about their patients from their electronic medical records.
• Personal information is removed from the data prior to being collected and further de-identified after collection to ensure it is completely anonymous.
• CPCSSN extracts data every three months which allows for health patterns to be detected in a very timely way.
• We share the information and reports with governments, physicians, nurses and other health care team members, researchers and planners to improve primary health care.
