The CC Patient Portal uses Epic's "MyChart" software, customized to the needs of Alberta's patients and families. This software has been piloted in the Edmonton Zone in family medicine and specialist clinics. Well received by patients and clinicians alike, the patient portal has improved appointment scheduling, streamlined clinic communications and even prevented unnecessary emergency visits.
A more advanced version, with more functions enabled, will be offered to all Albertans served by AHS, likely within the early years of the Connect Care journey. It will help patients and families manage all AHS interactions and will facilitate care during and between encounters.
