National e-Claims Standard Initiative (NeCST) - Healthcare Partnerships in Action

Sharon Moore


The National e-Claims Standard (NeCST) Project was initiated in April 2000 as a collaborative effort between the public and private sectors as well as national provider associations. This pan-Canadian, voluntary electronic standard was created in order to address the complex and expensive claims environment. This project is funded in part by the stakeholders and Canada Health Infoway, an independent corporation working to accelerate the development of compatible electronic health record systems in Canada.
