Create Work Location - EPRMP.03

Add a New Work Location

A work location should only be added when the correct one does not exist – don’t add a duplicate of one that has been added by another source. You can add a new work location for providers who work in your same work location when required by entering the following information:

  • purpose (always choose Health Information Distribution from the drop down list);
  • location name (e.g., Victoria Clinic); and
  • effective start date.

You can also include one or more of the following (optional):

  • addresses;
  • telecommunication numbers (e.g., telephone and fax);
  • electronic addresses (e.g., email or website); and
  • effective start date (for each of the above).

Contact Information

You can only add one of each of the following business contact elements in the work location record:

  • physical address;
  • mailing address;
  • telephone number;
  • cellular (mobile) number;
  • fax number;
  • email address; and
  • web site address.

Note: Either 'BC' (Business Contact)' or 'HC' (Home Contact) can be used to identify the purpose. BC is preferred.
