Countdown Checklist L5, T-minus 57: Get Ready for Oncology Conversion

Continuing a list of essential actions for Connect Care Launch 5 prescribers readying for launch November 6, 2022...
  • CCA Prescribers - Anticipate Oncology Conversion
Oncology conversion is the manual entry of oncology-related orders and information into Connect Care in preparation for launch. This includes chemotherapy treatment plans, therapy plans, cancer staging, oncology history, radiation therapy events, and bone marrow transplant episodes. Prescribers, nurses and pharmacists will be working together to convert information from the patient’s current electronic or paper chart into Connect Care. Nursing conversion begins September 5; Prescriber & Pharmacy conversion begins October 3.

There will be Conversion Walkthrough sessions between September 19 to 29 to support prescribers in preparation for oncology conversion activities. Conversion of treatment and therapy plans will be reviewed with an opportunity to ask questions. The below linked document contains the details for these sessions; clicking on the hyperlinked date for a session will open a calendar invitation, which you can then respond to and receive the meeting information.

Oncology Supported Workflow Practice (SWP) sessions for prescribers are also coming in late September to October for "hands to keyboard" practice to Cancer Care Alberta (CCA) sites, where end users can put into practice what they have learned during their in-class training. All 17 CCA sites will be offered this opportunity. See the below linked document for links to register for these SWP sessions.
