How We Work
The Health Quality Council of Alberta gathers and analyzes information, assesses the healthcare system to identify challenges and highlight best practices, and collaborates with Alberta Health, Alberta Health Services, health professions, academia, and other stakeholders to translate that knowledge into practical improvements to patient safety, person-centred care, and health service quality.
Our work is guided by three core elements:
The Health Quality Council of Alberta Act
An act that sets forth our responsibilities to promote and improve patient safety, person-centred care, and health service quality on a province-wide basis.
Our Strategic View
While our responsibilities are set forth in the Health Quality Council of Alberta Act, our work is guided by our Strategic View.
The Alberta Quality Matrix for Health
The Alberta Quality Matrix for Health creates a common understanding about quality for everyone who works within the healthcare system.
