Community Healthcare and Resource Directory
The Community Healthcare and Resource Directory (CHARD) application provides an exhaustive, province-wide directory of health care services and practitioners allowing health care professionals to locate information about health care practitioners and services in both the public and for-profit systems. The directory includes details such as services provided, referral process and forms, physician-only contact information, services fees, specialty and sub-specialty areas, research interests and more. The directory also indicates whether or not the practitioner is accepting new patients. The directory is primarily a web-based, self-serve application with a small support center to assist users in accessing the directory or revising/adding a listing. The web-based application is not accessible by the general public and includes a security layer that prevents access without authorization.
