Countdown Checklist L4, T-minus 37: Complete and Close Legacy Charts

Continuing a list of essential actions for Connect Care Launch 4 prescribers readying for launch May 28, 2022...
  • Complete and Close Legacy Charts
Incomplete charts at Launch 4 sites need physician attention pre-launch. Moving to a new clinical information system (CIS) is hard if pre-existing records are not tidied up.

Physicians must attend to ALL incomplete Launch 4 AHS health records by May 27, 2022. This includes outstanding dictations and signatures for inpatient and day surgery health records, not just those that are overdue. (Note: For Calgary Zone, Sunrise Clinical Manager [SCM] PRD will still be available for documentation of encounters preceding conversion to Connect Care.)

After 05:00 on May 28, 2022, records will be completed through the Connect Care CIS rather than external dictation or eScription. Any outstanding incomplete records that exist at cutover will not be transitioned into Connect Care. Any incomplete health records on inpatients discharged on/after May 28, 2022 will be completed in Connect Care. 

Physicians can contact Health Records at the Launch sites Monday to Friday 07:45-16:00 to obtain a list of incomplete charts requiring attention.
