Who to call?
First, look for an experienced user or Super User (yellow or orange Connect Care lanyard). During the weeks before and after a wave launch, updated information about local supports, on-site drop-in rooms and a virtual drop-in centre is maintained in the Launch Supports section and sub-sections.
If peer support is not immediately available, consider the type of problem:
Possible immediate Patient Care impact
Connect Care access or login problems
Non-Medical Device failure (e.g. printer, scanner)
Any kind of system or function downtime or failure
