To prioritize our response to COVID-19, we have made the decision to temporarily delay the roll-out of Connect Care. Connect Care is not being cancelled. The initiative remains one of our highest organizational priorities. However, given the increasing demands on our frontline physicians, staff and services due to COVID-19, this delay allows us to be strategic with our resources. Further updates on Connect Care planning will be communicated once we know more. Thank you for your understanding.
With the help of a shared provincial clinical information system, the Connect Care initiative will help improve patient outcomes and support consistent use of health information across Alberta. It will replace nearly 1,300 clinical information systems currently in place across Alberta Health Services (AHS).
When fully implemented, Connect Care will help physicians do their best possible work and focus on providing care.
