Connect Care Update: Requirements for Success

To help Connect Care move forward, the Connect Care Executive Committee recently identified several requirements for success. These reflect the needs of patients and healthcare providers, preparing to respond consistency and efficiency throughout AHS. Committing to high-level requirements is important because the decisions provide a foundation for designing the Connect Care clinical information system. Six key requirements were recently approved:
  1. AHS will seek HIMSS Stage 6 Certification
  2. AHS will adopt digital identification tools
  3. AHS will adopt digital identities (signatures)
  4. AHS will promote use of in-system documentation tools
  5. AHS will promote use of a Connect Care Provider Portal
  6. AHS will support flexible bed planning at the level of sites, programs, zones, and the province
