Digital Health

Alberta Health Services (AHS) is Canada’s first and largest province-wide, fully integrated health system, responsible for delivering health services to over four million people. In 2017, Alberta became the first province to institute a province-wide electronic health record system. The Clinical Information System (CIS) offers healthcare providers one central access point to patient information, common clinical standards and best healthcare practices. Patients are able to access their personal health plan and test results online, book appointments electronically and interact directly with their healthcare team through secure messaging.
