Although applicable to consultants, if the patient declines to have me share my walk-in clinic or ER encounter record with their primary care provider, I'm not sure that a requirement that I must "inform the primary care provider when information has been withheld" makes sense? Presumably the patient doesn't want their regular doc to know they saw me instead? I wonder if that could end up in court - perhaps CPSA legal counsel should take a second look at it? It might also save future headaches to look into how such information flows are structured within Connect Care (e.g. ER notes automatically routing to docs, After-Visit Summaries and other information automatically routing to patient portals), to help align this CPSA standard with those mechanics, if possible, rather than having to change one or the other shortly?
