The Health Quality Council of Alberta (HQCA) recently launched FOCUS on Primary Healthcare. The website features 15 interactive charts with information about what patients experience with primary healthcare in that province. Information can be viewed by Zone (the five Alberta Health Services geographic areas), or compared between Primary Care Networks (PCNs). Data about Alberta’s primary healthcare system include clinical care, delivery of care and a future addition will be patient experience, and will be updated annually.
The FOCUS on Primary Care website is an expansion of the FOCUS on Healthcare website, which launched in 2017 with FOCUS on Emergency Departments. The HQCA is currently working on FOCUS on Continuing Care, which will be launched in 2019.
