Countdown Checklist L8, T-minus 7: Support Cutover Activities

Continuing a list of essential actions for Connect Care Launch 8 prescribers readying for launch May 4, 2024...
  • Support Cutover Activities
Key for attending physicians, nurse practitioners and trainees anticipating Launch 8 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. 
  • 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.
  • Long-term care (LTC): Review orders entered into Connect Care for LTC residents to ensure accuracy of medication and non-medication orders. 
    • Complex patients: Consider pre-launch problem list documentation to support easy transition note generation at launch. Please be aware that clinical teams may still be entering information up until May 3 at 23:30.
  • Post-acute: Please ensure all forms are reviewed and signed by May 1. All new patients admitted from May 1 to May 3 will need cutover forms signed. 
Reminder: All team members should be logged out of the legacy and Connect Care systems by May 3 at 23:30, and remain out of the system until May 4 at 05:00.
