COVID-19 and Connect Care - Clinical Content

Clinical information systems (CIS) "content" includes standards (terminologies, lists, etc.), documentation tools (templates, flowsheets, automations, etc.), decision supports (references, advisories, order sets, etc.) and inquiry supports (performance indicators, quality measures, etc.), all designed to support best possible health services.

Connect Care clinical system design (CSD) has been drafting, building and implementing a wide range of clinical content to help clinicians care for patients with COVID-19 illness. We've previously posted about the release and revision of this content.

The burden of COVID-19 on the health care system increases as we struggle with a second wave of infections. The Connect Care updates will give priority to clinical content news, with practical guidance for Connect Care users about how best to use the CIS to reduce information burdens.
