CTR 2.0 offers the ability to have a single integrated recipient record. This allows improved patient management as all a recipient’s data can be managed within a single integrated record.
While, CTR 2.0 offers the integrated recipient record it is important to note that not all provincial partners are ready to integrate KPD and HSP data. To avoid data entry conflicts, linking is available to associate a recipient’s KPD and DWL record. KPD users can link the KPD recipient to the DWL/HSP record for reference. KPD users may not have access to the DWL record as the data for this record is created and updated thru web services.
Please note that there are very distinct uses in CTR for duplicates and links. See the table below for details:
|When is Duplication Applicable –
||When is Linking a record applicable –

The KPD coordinator can link the 2 records to allow easy reference.For provinces who utilize web services for DWL /HSP data and whom are not sending KPD patient data (Namely, QC, ON and BC). To avoid data conflicts, linking is the option to use to associate the KPD and DWL record.Provinces moving to the Single Recipient Record also have the ability to access Linking.
