Connect Care can positively impact non-Connect Care settings in a number of ways:
- Alberta's provincial Electronic Health Record, Netcare, which aggregates key health information and makes it available to authorized providers, is improved when Connect Care deploys because it gains a wider range of information from a single, standards-based, CIS source.
- "eDelivery" of health information from Connect Care and Netcare to EMRs is improved because a single CIS makes more information in a more consistent format easier for EMRs to capture and organize.
- New "Community Information Integration" (CII) and a "Central Patient Attachment Registry" (CPAR) initiatives jointly allow patients to be linked to a medical home, and for that home to share information with Netcare; extending sharing to include Connect Care as it rolls-out.
- A Connect Care Provider Portal provides access to the information that non-Connect Care prescribers need while also facilitating communication, notifications, referral and consultation, ordering and contributing to the Connect Care record.
