PRIME enrolment webinars

The following email is being sent on behalf of the Ministry of Health.

Registrants of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC with existing PharmaNet access who want to retain it must enrol in PRIME by August 15, 2023. Registrants who do not currently have access and require it, must enrol in PRIME before accessing PharmaNet.

PRIME is a mainly automated application where health professionals request permission to access PharmaNet for both sites and individuals.

Patient dispensing history in PharmaNet plays an integral part in building patient health profiles, defining impacts on current health, and informing courses of treatment. PRIME enrolment will improve the privacy and security of patient and practitioner information in PharmaNet.

Upcoming PRIME webinars

People accessing PharmaNet on a registrant’s behalf must also enrol by the same August 15, 2023 deadline (e.g. registration clerks, unit clerks, MOAs, students).

New sites (clinical locations where PharmaNet is used to deliver in-person care to patients) must be registered to access PharmaNet by August 31, 2023. Existing sites must be registered in PRIME for practitioners to retain access to PharmaNet at those locations. A site can be registered on a registrant’s behalf by someone who does not access PharmaNet and is not a registrant of a health regulatory college, such as your MOA or office manager.

There will be two webinars on March 22, 2023 to help people navigate the user enrolment and site registration processes. Both sessions will be recorded and posted on the PRIME webpage for those who cannot make it. There are also resources available online, and the PRIME support team is available to help.
