Connect Quality – Tools to Help Physicians Meet CPSA Requirements

As announced in our most recent Between the Charts newsletter, our Connect Quality initiative is officially launched! 

Connect Quality organizes resources, training, reporting tools, and the documentation required to meet College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta (CPSA) Physician Practice Improvement Program (PPIP) requirements, in one spot. When you work through a Connect Quality project, you will improve the quality of care for your patients, improve your own proficiency in using Connect Care, and meet your CPSA requirements, all at once! 

  • The first project that is available focuses on improving In Basket turnaround time, and uses Signal for data requirements.
    • If you have previously taken an In Basket CMIO Optimization class, you can use this to meet your CPSA requirements - just ask us how!
  • Projects on Problem List maintenance and Adverse Reaction maintenance will be added shortly, with other topics added in the future. 

See connectquality.ca for more details, and to sign up! The website can also be found in the Connect Care Manual - in the table of contents under Training >> Connect Quality, or search "Connect Quality". Once you sign up for a project, an information package with all the resources you need will be sent to you, including details on how to use Signal for the project.

If you have any questions on Connect Quality, including help with the sign up process, accessing your Signal data, or applying a previously completed CMIO Optimization class to meet your CPSA requirements, please contact cmio.optimization@ahs.ca.
