New family physician data now available

Posted Mar 31, 2021

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 available today. This free report provides measures on continuity of care, screening of chronic conditions, and more – so physicians can reflect on their practice and compare with colleagues.

Primary Healthcare Panel Reports have been offered for about a decade now. 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.

For family physicians such as Dr. Darryl Labuick of St. Alberta, the reports are an important component of quality improvement.

“The data provided in the HQCA Primary Healthcare Panel Reports are the alpha piece of information,” says Dr. Labuick. “We can trust it.”

Family physicians and/or their quality improvement representatives can request a report here. If you’ve already requested your report, you can access it here.
