Every year, more than 1,500 family physicians receive a Primary Healthcare Panel Report from the Health Quality Council of Alberta (HQCA) to help improve their practice.
The 2021 reports are set to be available in the coming weeks. This report provides measures on continuity of care, screening for chronic conditions, and more – so physicians can reflect on their practice and compare with colleagues.
Since 2011, the HQCA has been providing Primary Healthcare Panel Reports upon request to family physicians across the province. This free resource is an invaluable tool to support and inform program planning, panel management, quality improvement, and policy development at the various levels of the primary healthcare system.
The HQCA develops them in partnership with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta, Alberta Health, Alberta Health Services, the AMA, the University of Alberta, the University of Calgary, the Physician Learning Program, Primary Care Networks, and the HQCA Patient and Family Advisory Committee.
