Diverse physician contributions have proved invaluable to Connect Care groundwork, direction-setting, system design and validation. With clinical information system (CIS) testing, training and launch readiness the new priority, new types of contributions will keep Connect Care on course through implementation and optimization.

Super Users promote user organization, engagement and accountability. They work with peers in clinical areas, helping them adapt to new workflows while building capacity for meaningful use of the Connect Care CIS. Physician Super Users facilitate prescriber participation in readiness activities, ensure clinically authentic CIS testing, and build relationships to support physicians “at the elbow” prior to, during and following launch. Super Users are change agents who help users take ownership of their CIS.

Super Users enjoy both clinical and technical challenges, they are approachable and have good people skills. They combine Connect Care system knowledge with organizational street-smarts and excel at “getting stuff done”. Physician Super Users have deep knowledge about all aspects of clinical service delivery. They may have specific informatics roles in host clinical communities and be tasked with leveraging Connect Care for maximum benefit to those communities. They will become the lifeblood of Connect Care User Groups.
