Assessments: EUPA and On Our Best Behaviours


When you are ready, you can register for your End User Proficiency Assessment (EUPA) on AHS MyLearningLink. The EUPA must be completed with a minimum score of 80%. You must complete the EUPA to obtain access to Connect Care. If you successfully completed your EUPA but the system did not move you to PASS, please click here to complete a 10-second attestation, and we will update our records.

What if I am not successful in passing my EUPA?

During your EUPA, the system will advise you on if your response is correct or incorrect. It will also provide you a reference to your learning materials to make it easy for your review. If you are unsuccessful with the EUPA, you can take it as soon as you're ready to try it again. If you have questions or are struggling, please email us at help.cmio@ahs.ca to arrange extra help.

On Our Best Behaviours

You must also complete AHS Privacy training eLearning, called InfoCare: On Our Best Behaviours (OOBB) before you obtain access to Connect Care. If you successfully completed OOBB but the system did not move you to PASS, please click here to complete a 10-second attestation, and we will update our records.

4. Preparing for Launch: Personalization Course and Login Lab

Now that you have completed your initial training and EUPA, if you haven’t already registered for a personalization course, please go to MyLearningLink and register. The personalization course is an opportunity to create preferences and shortcuts in Connect Care, and is integral to the efficient and specialty-specific use of the system. We will be providing Personalization courses online and in-person.

Login Lab

It is CRITICAL you check your login for Connect Care before personalization class and prior to the date you require access to Connect Care. To do so, you will need to:

  1. Make sure you have completed your EUPA and OOBB assessments as outlined above.

  2. Open the Connect Care Production (PRD) environment from Citrix My Apps folder (https://myapps.albertahealthservices.ca/).

  3. On the Hyperspace login screen, enter your AHS username and password. If you have multiple “jobs” available, please repeat the next steps for each job.

  4. In the department screen, select your zonal virtual clinical department (e.g., Edmonton Zone Cardiology, Calgary Zone Pediatrics).

  5. Once in, click the Epic button, select "Help", followed up by "CMIO Login Labs Info", and follow the onscreen instructions.

If you’re unable to log in to Hyperspace, please call the IT Service Desk & Solution Centre 1-877-311-4300 and identify that you have a CMIO role and are unable to log in to Hyperspace to complete your login lab.
