The Health Quality Council of Alberta (HQCA) has updated the FOCUS on Healthcare website with four new measures for long term care and new Q3 data for emergency departments.
Four new measures added to FOCUS on Healthcare: long term care
- Cognitive performance
- Frailty and risk of health decline
- Potential depression
- Activities of daily living
These measures come from select outcome scales, which are part of the inteRAI assessment instrument. These scales help to describe the population of long term care residents that require services and can be used to inform system-level planning for quality improvement, program development, and resource allocation.
New data for FOCUS on Healthcare: emergency departments
The Q3 data for FOCUS on Healthcare’s emergency department area is now available. This update includes data from October, November, and December 2019.
