Patient Summary

This project helps create a point-in-time health record summary using standardized information about a patient’s health, treatment and demographic information. The patient summary makes it easier for care providers to make informed decisions and coordinate transitions in care. 

This project aligns the patient summary record with Canadian specifications. Care providers will be able to generate a patient summary using their own clinical system so it can be shared or accessed by other providers to support care delivery. 


  • Automates access to clinically relevant patient information, enabling providers to create a quick, accurate patient summary with minimal effort.
  • Establishes standards to ensure this information can be shared seamlessly between clinical systems and care providers using a common format. 
  • Establishes guidelines so patient summary information can be integrated within clinical systems.
  • Patients will benefit from not having to repeat their health-related story multiple times and from not having to duplicate medical and clinical tests.
