Prescriber Identity and Contact Information
Alberta Health Services (AHS) maintains a directory of all persons entitled to access its health information systems. Relevant information includes physician demographics, contact numbers and types of clinical practice. The Identity and Access database also informs key clinical information system (CIS) permissions.
The Connect Care CIS uses a “provider registry” to organize information about clinicians using the CIS. The registry affects CIS user roles and departmental affiliations.
Prescriber demographic and contact information exposed to other Connect Care users can be viewed using the Hyperspace "Phone Book" activity. The details appearing there affect how letterhead and signature blocks display in communications, after-visit summaries and many user-interface elements.
Checking and Correcting
We recommend checking and correcting information in three places:
Access: AHS Network User Information (iam.ahs.ca)
Role: Connect Care Physician Role information ("CMIO Login Lab" via Hyperspace search)
Information: Connect Care Phone Book ("Phone Book" via Hyperspace search)
