Standards play a critical role in the delivery of health care by providing the framework that ensures that the collection and exchange of patient information across the health care system is consistent.

We work closely with our partners including the Regional Health Authorities, the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI), Canada Health Infoway (particularly the Standards Collaborative), the Department of Health and Community Services (including MCP), Service NL (specifically Vital Statistics) and Statistics Canada to develop and maintain national and provincial standards.
