Mobile Device Selection, Purchase and Support

Many of us will come to do prefer mobility for specific clinical information system (CIS) tasks. These can be set up to our liking, move with us, and work well in Connect Care facilities.

Choosing

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

Purchasing

Alberta Health Services enjoys employee purchase privileges with some hardware vendors. Physicians who have university appointments can also consider faculty purchase programs and academic discounts. University physicians may be eligible for further equipment purchase supports through their department or division.

Keep receipts! Physicians have been eligible for medical hardware purchase supports through the Alberta Medical Association. Note that the AMA medical device expense support program is coming to an end March 31, 2020. Interested physicians should submit claims before then.
