Provincial Government Chooses Vendor to Review Health Information Systems
Ernst & Young LLP (EY) has been selected as the contractor to review Alberta's electronic health information systems. Three systems will be examined: Alberta Netcare, MyHealth Records and the upcoming Connect Care platform. The review will involve consultation with health-care professionals, patient groups and other key stakeholders. EY will provide a final report to government in January 2020.
Alberta Netcare is the province’s electronic health record, which links information on health services and makes it available to health professionals at the point of care. MyHealth Records is an online tool that allows adult Albertans to see key information from Netcare such as lab test results, immunizations and medication history. Connect Care is a new clinical platform under development by Alberta Health Services (AHS). It will support AHS care providers and enable Albertans to access information on AHS services they have received via MyHealth Records.
