1.1

This Standard defines a blueprint for the development of a CPIS, including functional characteristics and a core data set to support Canadian paramedicine. The Standard provides guidance regarding data elements, data sharing requirements, and the information needs of key stakeholders.

1.2

This Standard is not a CPIS. It provides the guidance to develop a CPIS and its associated data framework. CPIS stakeholder data sets are not included in the initial CPIS Standard. Future standards will address data set focused on the particular data needs of specific stakeholder groups.

This Standard does not cover requirement for wait times indicators.

Note: The Technical Committee plans to include requirements and definitions for wait times in a future edition of this Standard.

1.3

In this Standard, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the Standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.
