Alberta Health Services (AHS) would like to welcome healthcare providers to participate and engage with Connect Care, a new way of using and sharing health information to improve patient care.
With Connect Care Provider Portal (CCPP), you will have access to information about your patients who receive care from Alberta Health Services. You will be able to track them through their care, giving you a more complete picture of their health information. The Connect Care Provider Portal (CCPP) is free of charge for independent community clinicians in Alberta.
Connect Care is being implemented across AHS between now and 2023. If your patients are attending an AHS site that is using Connect Care, through CCPP, you have the ability to view clinical records associated with those events, as well as track referrals and AHS appointments for procedures or tests.
You can also access historical AHS test results and treatment summaries retroactive to 2017 for all of your patients, no matter where you or your patient is located in Alberta.
Quickly find what you are looking for by selecting a topic.
Connect Care Provider Portal provides you with web access to AHS clinical content contained in Connect Care. With CCPP you can improve continuity of care for your patients, while ensuring appropriate privacy controls are in place.
As a provider with an independent practice, you can use Connect Care Provider Portal to:
AHS has tested CCPP with a small group of independent clinicians and received the following feedback:
This is the first time I have access to this level of information about hospital visits and stays, and the level of continuity to provide patient care. Nice to have answers. Patients assume we have information.
This is the way to go if you need information quick.
All members of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of the Province of Alberta are eligible to use CCPP. In addition, a physician can take accountability for and approve access for their staff, who can then assist them by using CCPP.
Other health professionals, such as nurses, midwives, pharmacists and optometrists may also be eligible. The list of professions that we support is continually expanding. Please contact us to see if your health profession is eligible at this time. As is the case for physicians, these eligible health professions can also take responsibility for their staff to gain access to CCPP.
If you are working with AHS to provide care, such as a physician or midwife with AHS privileges, AHS may already have provided you with access to Connect Care. If this is the case, you will not personally need CCPP, because it duplicates your existing access. However, you can take responsibility for your staff to gain access to CCPP at your independent practice, so they can support you. Contact us to find out how to sign up your staff for CCPP.
