This week I had the wonderful opportunity to visit the University of Alberta Hospital and Stollery Children’s Hospital to meet with staff, physicians and volunteers, and hear about their early experiences with Connect Care. Wave 1 launched Sunday at 4 a.m. and the response has been remarkable.
There is so much positivity at the site, even with a very steep learning curve to new work flows and new technology. I saw everyone's steadfast support of patients, families, and each other. I heard about some frustration but, most of all, I heard of teams coming together to solve challenges and move forward. I’m glad many people on my visit were willing to share their experiences with me. I also heard about the steady support people are receiving from our Super Users, as well as from our partners at Epic Systems. You can see the highlights from my visit in this five-minute video.
