Changes to AHS DI Appointment Notifications Sent to Ordering Providers

As of June 10, 2024, the AHS diagnostic Imaging (DI) notification of appointment letters sent to community providers by AHS DI no longer include the patient notification letter. Prior to this change, provider notifications included a copy of the notification letter that is sent to the patient. Provider notifications continue to include the appointment details and process instructions. This will shorten the provider notifications sent by one to three pages. The AHS DI team will continue to contact the patient directly with preparation instructions prior to their appointment.

My name is Smitha Yaltho and I feel privileged to work as a family physician. Why? I believe that being a family physician has been the best job any physician can hope to have. I have personally grown in my own abilities and skill-sets with diverse opportunities in ambulatory practice, acute care and work in Facility Living.  Working in primary care has been exciting and has also afforded me tremendous opportunities for growth while still remaining stimulating in its complexity.  I believe that Family physicians are trusted partners in patient care –  every step of the way. 

Why are you volunteering to serve on this committee?
I currently have an interest in Physician Leadership and  trauma informed care.  I have served as a director with the Board of Directors with the Edmonton North PCN, Edmonton’s largest PCN. Thereafter, I have worked as the Director of Medical Services with CapitalCare (also based in Edmonton) for almost 6 years. It is my express wish that my contribution on the ACFP board of directors will highlight the excellence of family medicine that exists right here and now within the Alberta health care system. 

What about the ACFP’s work do you find most valuable?
Ability to highlight and further support the excellence of primary care right here in Alberta.
