Countdown Checklist W2 L-09: Support Cutover Activities

Continuing a list of essential actions for Wave 2 physicians readying for Connect Care Launch Oct 24, 2020...
  • Support Cutover Activities
Key for attendings and trainees anticipating Wave 2 inpatient and/or outpatient launch is work to make sure that essential information is ready for loading or linking into the 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 (see resources).
  • Outpatient:
    make sure that all clinic documentation is complete, signed and routed; while also taking care to close open charts in any legacy systems.
  • Complex patients:
    consider pre-launch problem list documentation to support easy transition note generation at launch.
