Connect Care Adoption

Growing awareness of Connect Care, and its supporting clinical information system (CIS), causes many Alberta physicians to ask how they relate to the initiative. Will they be required, or have the opportunity, to use the full Connect Care CIS? If they do not use Connect Care, what tools can they use for information sharing with independent electronic medical records?

The following resources explain how prescribers and practices are assessed as in or out of scope for the initial Connect Care implementation. Other resources summarize strategies to better coordinate care that spans areas where Connect Care is, and is not, the record of care.
