Recruiting Wave 1 physicians


Connect Care Wave 1 will launch at several Edmonton Zone sites in November 2019, and work is underway to make sure that physicians are supported.

Area trainers are physicians who will deliver in-classroom training to their peers while promoting transformation and clinical improvement. Physician super users will become clinical experts in use of the system and trusted resources to support their peers in learning new workflows.

We are recruiting for both of these critical physician roles from a broad spectrum of clinical departments and specialty areas affected by the Wave 1 launch. To learn more, please visit Seeking Connect Care Super Users and Seeking Connect Care Area Physician Trainers on the Connect Care Bytes Blog.

To apply, email Please include your CV, and indicate your work site, specialty and position of interest (area trainer and/or super user).

Clinical Operations recruitment for super users is also well underway. Wave 1 staff can connect with their leaders for more information.


A sneak peek at non-medical devices


The Information Technology team has released a new video that demonstrates some of the inpatient non-medical devices that will be used as part of Connect Care. Devices showcased include Workstation on Wheels (WOW), barcode scanners, laptops and wristband printers.

You can view the video on the Connect Care Insite page.

A special thanks to all staff who gave their time and participated in the making of this video. More videos are already in the works and will be posted on Insite in the near future, so check back often.
