Mobile Device Selection, Purchase and Support

Many of us will come to prefer doing common clinical information system (CIS) tasks on mobile or personal computing devices. These are set up to our liking, move with us, and will work well with wireless in Connect Care facilities and clinics.

There are some considerations to bear in mind when choosing a device for use with the Connect Care CIS:

Alberta Health Services enjoys employee purchase privileges with some hardware vendors and physicians who have university appointments can also consider faculty purchase programs and academic discounts.

For those interested in new Apple iPads, Macbooks or Macbook Pros, a Connect Care physician purchase portal is available. The recommended devices are CIS-appropriate and backed by extended enterprise AppleCare.

Keep receipts! Physicians are eligible for medical hardware purchase supports through the Alberta Medical Association. University physicians may be eligible for some further equipment purchase supports.
