Provider Registry

The provider registry is the authoritative source of information about providers and health care service delivery locations for use by all EHR solutions. It facilitates the unique and accurate identification of any individual or organization that provides health services in Ontario, or who participates in the collection, use, or disclosure of PHI across the continuum of care. 

The registry assigns a unique provincial identifier to each provider and maintains information about them, including professional accreditations (e.g. licences, professions, specialties). It is fed by regulatory colleges, Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care databases, hospitals, and other organizations. 

The provider registry is designed to address the business need to: 

  • Positively identify providers 
  • Provide information on providers, including credentials, status, documented restrictions of activity, work locations, and relevant health care organization affiliations and local privileges.
  • Examples of services provided by the registry include: 
    • Searching and resolving a provider’s identity
    • Searching and getting provider organization data and locations
    • Obtaining provider information (e.g. current status of professional accreditations)
