The work of evaluating a technology platform for the Alberta Health Services Provincial Clinical Information System (CIS) continues, with expectation of selection within a matter of months. Accordingly, preparations for design and build are well underway. This involves pulling together diverse groups in AHS, understanding (multiple variants of) prevailing workflows, and transforming practice to align with best guidance and CIS-enabled optimization. With critically important discussions and documents unfolding, it becomes clear that information management terms are not always jointly understood. Happily, stakeholders have agreed to collaboratively define “CIS Key Concepts,” then stick to a common interpretation as work continues.
