With word (and excitement) getting out about the start of Connect Care design and build, physicians not using Alberta Health Services (AHS) digital health records wonder about how they can follow how their patients are served by AHS. These and many other needs will be served by the Connect Care Provider Portal. This will connect community providers to the Connect Care clinical information system, allowing them to request consults, schedule appointments, place orders, and exchange secure messages with colleagues, patients and patients' circle of care. They will receive notifications and view updates about lab, imaging, test and procedure results; admissions, transitions and discharges; referrals and consultations; clinical images and scanned files; notes, letters and documents and orders placed by other providers.
