PHC Weekly Newsletter

Hello all,

On behalf of AHS and our primary care partners, the Primary Health Care team is pleased to share the following items for distribution to your audiences as appropriate.

If you have any questions about the mailout, please contact me at



Clinical information

Interim Fax Routing – Changing Connect Care Provider Communication Method

An interim routing solution is now available that may be beneficial for community providers who also have a Connect Care In Basket (mixed-context providers) who have limited, intermittent work in a Connect Care context and do not want all their results and documentation sent to Connect Care In Basket. Mixed-context providers can request their default communication method for results and documentation be changed from Connect Care In Basket to fax, either for all information currently sent to their Connect Care In Basket that can be faxed, or for diagnostic cardiology results only.
