MyAHS Connect - Coming 2020

MyAHS Connect is a new tool to help Alberta patients manage their health and healthcare experience.

MyAHS Connect is part of a larger project called Connect Care. With Connect Care, your AHS and partner health records will be stored in a single location and your healthcare team will have a more complete picture of your health history. Connect Care will be phased in across Alberta. Health organizations that work with Alberta Health Services (AHS), such as Covenant Health and Carewest, will also use Connect Care.
