Direction-Setting is one of the major activities occurring during design of the Connect Care (CC) Clinical Information System (CIS). Other activities include Groundwork, Validation & Adoption and Clinical System Design.
Where Groundwork helps the Epic team learn about AHS as an organization, Direction Setting explores how AHS does its work and how the CIS will work for AHS. The purpose of Direction-Setting is to prepare for a CIS foundation build that it supports further work, rather than getting in the way. Clinical System Design digs deeper, tuning the CIS to support specific healthcare lines of service.
