AHS suffers province-wide network outage

Alberta Health Services (AHS) says the organization is experiencing a province-wide network outage which is impacting some services.

While AHS says EMS dispatch is functioning and calls to 911 are not affected, Health Link 811 is only available at a limited capacity.

“Wait times will be longer than usual as we restore full service,” AHS said in a statement to CTV News.

In an emergency, people should continue to call 911.

“Our teams are currently using downtime procedures, which are immediately put in place if an electronic system isn’t available. This ensures we can continue to provide patient care,” said AHS.

Albertans can still visit AHS.ca.

Updates on the network outage will be posted to a new temporary website created by AHS.

This is a developing story and will be updated with more details as they become available…
