From detailed guides to online courses – resources are available to provide you with the knowledge necessary to build and integrate EHR applications.

Deployment Principles

  • HIAL-to-HIAL patterns and service consumption paths: while traversing the HIAL, EHR services should be consumed via the most direct path possible.
  • Regional HIAL segments should not provide simple pass-through proxy services for provincial services: regional integration services provide material support to regional point of service applications that are not capable of consuming provincial services directly. Conversely, point of service applications that are able to consume provincial services directly should do so without going through the local regional HIAL segment.
  • Business context propagation: components may need to know about the original business context of a call to apply fine-grained authorization and consent policies. 
  • Data messaging interactions authenticated and authorized: this guarantees that only valid, recognized, and authorized users access EHR data messaging services, and enables the traceability and auditing capabilities required to support the protection of PHI.
