Primary Healthcare Panel Reports
These standardized physician patient panel reports use administrative health data to provide information about patient demographic characteristics, health status, and aspects of patient management and utilization patterns across the healthcare system.
They are a resource that physicians and their teams can use to strengthen the Patient’s Medical Home by providing reliable data and vital information that can be used to improve panel management, continuity, access, and quality of care for patients on a panel.
Over the last year, the HQCA collaborated with patients; family physicians; PCN executive and medical directors; Alberta Health; Alberta Health Services; Alberta Medical Association; the College of Physicians & Surgeons of Alberta; and, the Universities of Alberta and Calgary medical schools to revise the Primary Healthcare Panel Reports. The 2016-17 panel report reflects the needs of primary healthcare stakeholders, and includes:
- Updated measures which are actionable and useful
- A new format for easier reading and interpretation
- A new dashboard to help identify successes and areas for improvement
Proxy Panel Report: a report based on the HQCA’s 6-cut algorithm of a physician’s patient panel. Select this option if you cannot provide a validated list of your patients.
Confirmed Patient List Report (CPL): a report based on a list of personal health numbers (PHN) submitted by the physician. We will contact you about providing us with a completed data-sharing agreement, and instructions for submitting your CPL to the HQCA. Once we receive this information, the report will be emailed to you, at the address you provide, within two weeks.
Clinic Report: a report based on the PHN’s for up to 10 participating clinic physicians. If you want a clinic report you must request one by contacting the HQCA.
About the reports
Since 2012, the HQCA has been providing Primary Healthcare Panel Reports to family physicians, upon request, across the province. We hope these reports are an invaluable resource that can be used to support and inform program planning, panel management, quality improvement, and policy development at the various levels of the primary healthcare system.
