The Health Quality Council of Alberta (HQCA) released their annual primary care data update on the FOCUS on Healthcare website. This update included:
- Patient experience data up to March 2022 – These measures provide provincial survey results, from our Primary Care Patient Experience survey, and show patients’ experience in areas such as family doctor listening, availability, and appointment length.
- Clinical care and delivery of care data up to March 2021 – Filter these measures by Zone (the five Alberta Health Services geographic areas) or compare information between Primary Care Networks (PCNs). 2020/21 data was not available for three of the screening measures (diabetes, lipids, and colorectal cancer) so 2019 data is still displayed.
- Consider the overall healthcare system – what’s happening in primary care can impact patients’ experiences in the emergency department (ED). View data from other healthcare areas to see how the healthcare system is connected with new ED data coming soon.
