Given the current situation across Alberta Health Services related to managing COVID-19 and the pressure this has placed on our system, AHS' Executive Leadership Team has made the decision to change the timing and scope of our upcoming Connect Care launches.
Connect Care remains one of our highest organizational priorities. Even with this change, some Connect Care work will still continue to support the needs of the organization, and to prepare for the next launches, the most immediate of which will take place in April 2021.
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.
