Alberta is leading the country in the implementation of a single province-wide Electronic Health Record (EHR) initiative called Alberta Netcare. Alberta’s EHR is a secure lifetime record of every Albertan’s key health care information. It includes basic information about drugs, allergies, immunizations, and lab tests, and is accessed only by authorized health professionals.
As pharmacies are required to implement new technology and expanded services related to the EHR, it is important that financial assistance is available. We work closely with Alberta Health to ensure appropriate compensation at every stage and administer the distribution of grant funding to community pharmacies across Alberta.
