Connect Care


What is a Clinical Information System (CIS)?

A CIS is an electronic tool that will provide healthcare providers one central access point to patient information, common clinical standards and best healthcare practices.

Why are we doing this?

It's simple: Albertans deserve outstanding healthcare.

Through Connect Care, the AHS Provincial CIS initiative:

  • Albertans will have access to their own health information
  • We will build strong bridges between patients and healthcare providers
  • Information, knowledge and best practices will be easily shared
  • We will provide consistent healthcare no matter where you are in the province
  • Patient information will be available wherever you travel in the health system
  • More than 1,300 independent systems will be brought together
  • Will lead to better outcomes and satisfaction for the patients and families
