Commonwealth Fund Surveys

In 2011, the HQCA co-sponsored a Commonwealth Fund International Health Policy Survey of Sicker Adults. As co-sponsor, the HQCA funded a larger sample size for Alberta, and used the survey data to examine health-related quality of life among Albertans, Ontarians, and Quebecois, as well as international individuals. Individuals self-reported their diagnoses for all chronic conditions in the survey. Subsequently, the HQCA examined individuals’ perceptions of the healthcare system in terms of performance and quality of care, as well as their experiences with selected areas of healthcare. The HQCA determined whether these experiences vary by burden of chronic health condition and how experience or burden of illness impacted their functional health status.
