Why are provincial standards important?
Provincial standards ensure EMR have a solid foundation to support delivery of quality patient care. Provincial standards also support:

  • information sharing and interoperability between primary care sites and specialists to improve continuity of care
  • consistent and measurable preventative care and chronic disease management
  • advancement of primary care renewal efforts
  • consistent data collection and submission to support health system planning

EMR Certification of EMR products against provincial standards supports achievement of these objectives, while managing cost and risk.

EMR products requesting certification in Manitoba must meet all mandatory requirements in order to achieve certified product status. Assessment criteria are dependent on the level of certification being requested and whether optional requirements are included. Summary descriptions, specifications and assessment guides related to both core and optional requirements can be found in the tables below.
