Alberta Health Services - More jobs by this advertiser


Connect Care Area Trainers (ATs) are practitioner-users of the Connect Care clinical information system (CIS) in one or more areas of clinical specialization. ATs are recruited, trained and supported to instruct and support peers (in their own or similar clinical area or specialty) in safe and acceptable CIS use while promoting transformation and clinical improvement.

Accordingly, they work closely with zone medical leadership and co-report to relevant Associate Chief Medical Information Officers (ACMIOs). It is possible for Physician Design Leads, MILs, other physician roles or physician contributors to extend their Connect Care commitment by adding an AT role for a larger overall FTE allocation.

ATs are guided by CMIO Provincial Training team who have provincial scope and responsibility for design of curriculum content that can be adapted to clinical area and facility needs.

Approximately 160 hours over a period of 6 months inclusive of training. Fractioning of the role can occur at the discretion of the ACMIO.

Reports through Associate Chief Medical Information Officers with support from the Alberta Health Services (AHS) CMIO Portfolio.

There are a total of 1+ Area Trainer positions available for this posting.
