Term: Physician Integrated Network (PIN) Data
Last Updated: 2014-10-14
The Physician Integrated Network (PIN) data contains information about patient visits to family-practice clinics participating in PIN. This includes information such as patient demographics, prescriptions, dates of tests and lab work, and medical advice offered. Clinical data are collected directly from each PIN clinic's
electronic medical record (EMR).
The EMR extract is used by Manitoba Health, Healthy Living and Seniors to provide the clinic with
Quality Based Incentive Funding (QBIF).
The PIN EMR extract data is thus believed to be high quality because of the direct link with remuneration.
NOTE: The Physician Integrated Network (PIN) data is project specific and therefore does not have a data description available on the external MCHP web site.
