The responsibility for issuing and renewing provincial health cards and administering the provincial health registration system is being transferred to eHealth Saskatchewan from the Ministry of Health.
“We are committed to ensuring there will be a seamless transition with a continued focus on customer service,” eHealth Saskatchewan CEO Susan Antosh said. “eHealth is well-suited to incorporate health registration because of our robust privacy and security safeguards for personal health information.”
This move is a natural progression of housing similar services. eHealth currently works closely with Health Registration to provide support for the electronic system that runs the online application and renewal process for health cards. The function of health registration aligns well with the recent transfer of vital statistics to eHealth.
The transfer takes effect in early November.
