Alberta Clinical Research Consortium Session #3 – Digital Health & Virtual Research

Presented by the Alberta Clinical Research Consortium Speakers: Trina Johnson, Christie McLeod

Description: Connect Care Research Functionality Connect Care as an initiative includes the implementation of various tools and functionality that can be utilized to support clinical health research and inquiry inside and alongside AHS clinical spaces. The research module within Connect Care serves to integrate and inform workflows between patient care and health services provided. Patient charts, visits and orders are marked with a research study ‘flag’ as being related to a specific study. This increases awareness of research study participation and supports clinical decision-making while enhancing patient safety. While the research module itself does not capture the entire end-to-end of the patient journey (that can only be accomplished with multi-application inter-application hand-offs), it is a space for research team members to perform workflows to support research and inquiry in clinical settings, thus integrating typically siloed research activities into clinical care pathways.
