Countdown Checklist L7, T-minus 7: Support Cutover Activities

Continuing a list of essential actions for Connect Care Launch 7 prescribers readying for launch November 5, 2023...
  • Support Cutover Activities
Key for attending physicians, nurse practitioners and trainees anticipating Launch 7 inpatient and/or outpatient launch is work to make sure that essential information is ready for loading or linking into the Connect Care clinical information system before launch... and that legacy systems are tidied up so that they can be retired. Related preparations include: 
  • General inpatient: Make sure that all dictations are complete and signed; use dictation (eScription) for all admissions, transfers and consults between now and launch, if possible, so that transition notes at launch can refer to recent documentation in Netcare. 
  • Surgical inpatient: Make sure that work is underway to enter upcoming surgical cases into Connect Care.
  • Outpatient: Make sure that all clinic documentation is complete, signed and routed, while also taking care to close any charts still open in legacy systems.
  • Complex patients: Consider pre-launch problem list documentation to support easy transition note generation at launch. Please reach out to your Cutover Team at cc.cutover@ahs.ca for the timing of this activity.
  • Long-term care (LTC):
    • October 30–November 4 - Review orders entered into Connect Care for LTC residents to ensure accuracy of medication and non-medication orders. 
    • LTC clinical teams may still be entering care plan information and other clinical documentation, but the majority of orders will be entered by October 28.
