Update on Results Release in MyAHS Connect

Starting June 18, 2024, five additional test results and their results-related documents will become immediately available to patients in MyAHS Connect (MAC), the online patient tool for Connect Care, without a 5-day hold. 

  • The five test results that will be available without a 5-day hold are:
    • Stress Test
    • Holter Monitor
    • Electrocardiogram (ECG)
    • Electroencephalogram (EEG)
    • Electromyography (EMG)
  • Making these results available in MAC aligns with the release of these same results through MyHealth Records in My Personal Records, the provincial personal health record tool.
  • Currently, patients who have access to MAC can see these test results 5 days after their ordering provider receives them. After June 18, the results and related documents will be available to patients at the same time as the ordering provider, as with other results in MAC.

In addition to the immediate release of the five tests and their related documents, historical results-related documents for tests that were already viewable in MAC will also be added on June 18. This includes results-related documents for lab, diagnostic imaging and cardiology tests that date back to the start of Connect Care.

  • The historical results-related documents will not appear in the patient's test results, but will be visible in the "Document Center" of MAC. Patients will not receive an alert that these historical results-related documents are available; the documents will simply appear in the tool to view at their convenience.

As with previous results releases, providers may consider giving patients more information about the implications of different results at the time of ordering a test.

Physicians and other providers will continue to have access to results through their usual delivery channels, as well as through Alberta Netcare.

More information on the release of results is available via a 1-pager.
