Learning how to use Connect Care Mobile Apps

Connect Care supports mobile apps for smartphones (Haiku), iPads (Canto) and Apple Watches (Limerick). These follow familiar norms for user interaction. The apps are "guessable" and can be discovered through exploration. Nonetheless, a little orientation can speed mastery of time-saving functions, such as remote order-entry. A dictation app (PowerMic Mobile) is discussed elsewhere.

eLearning Modules

Short eLearning modules are available through MyLearningLink. These cover how to review patient lists and schedules, skim charts, review results, dictate progress notes and use secure messaging. Open and log in to MyLearningLink, then search for courses that start with "Epic - HKU". There are about 10 brief self-directed modules... all worth the time.

Mobility Guides

Haiku differs in Android and iOS environments. Quickstart guides for Haiku and Canto help users understand what can be done and how to do it.
