Connect Care is changing the way Alberta Health Services (AHS) provides healthcare.
Right now, AHS and its partners store health information in hundreds of different systems across the province. This means healthcare providers may only have access to part of your health history. It’s the reason you are sometimes asked to repeat your story again and again.
Connect Care is a province-wide initiative that will change how patient information flows between patients and their healthcare providers. With Connect Care, your AHS and partner health records will be accessible from any AHS and partner location in the province. Your information will move with you through your care journey, giving your AHS and partner care teams a more complete picture of your health history, as well as consistent clinical information and best practices.
Connect Care is being phased in across Alberta between November 2019 and early 2023.
MyAHS Connect, is a secure, online, interactive tool, provided by Alberta Health Services that gives you access to your Connect Care health information. The health information viewable in MyAHS Connect is a reflection of the Connect Care record that your healthcare team uses. Any contributions that you make to your MyAHS Connect account is viewable by your healthcare team and vice versa.

MyAHS Connect is being phased in across Alberta over the next two years, so not every Albertan will have access right now.
If the facility you are visiting has started using Connect Care, your healthcare team will provide you with sign-up instructions which will guide you in accessing your MyAHS Connect account. You may receive the instructions via email, as a printed letter during your visit or included on your After Visit Summary. If you need another copy of the sign-up instructions, please contact your clinic.
MyAHS Connect is available to patients at sites that have started using Connect Care, who are age 14 or over, and who have Alberta-issued identification.
