How do you feel about Connect Care?

Hey people, I’ve started this poll about Albertans and how things are going for them as they deal with Connect Care in its launch this recent Sunday (nov4).

If you have a concern or are dealing with an issue or have a positive comment. As an example, I will go first. 4 months before the launch of the new system, I was told I needed surgery for cancer. It was found early and I am in no way losing my life but was classified as high priority . After no call in september, I called mid-October and they relayed the launch of the new system being the reason for delayed surgery.

As of today, Nov 7, I am still waiting. I’m frustrated but understanding this is a new system and takes time for training and everything, okay I can deal with that. So, with that example, for my poll across this province, does anyone have anything to share in regards to Comnect Care? I’d love to hear if anyone else has a story.

Thanks for reading and for your comments

  1. I don’t know if Connect Care has anything to do with your surgery date. OR times are unfortunately getting cut so that is why your surgery is taking forever. Breast Cancer patients are waiting months. It’s horrible

    As with any system change there are bumps in the road. This is a huge undertaking and only four facilities have actually made the changeover. Also, it’s only been live for five days and people are still learning. I hope you get something scheduled soon for your treatment. I think Connect Care will be awesome for AB though once it’s up and running smoothly.

    Calm down everyone. Its Day 7 of launch of a massive program that is radically changing the handling of patient care and information in Alberta. I’m sure everyone is working hard to overcome any glitches amd problems.
