How we meet our mandate.

Healthcare Provider Resources

The HQCA produces publications and materials to help health professionals work toward improvement in areas of health service quality and patient safety.

Studies and Reviews

The HQCA conducts studies and reviews of various facets of Alberta’s healthcare system as part of our mandate to assess or study matters respecting patient safety and health service quality.


Surveys provide the HQCA with vital insight into Albertans’ experiences with the healthcare system and are a key measure of quality and source of information to improve care and services.


The HQCA, often in partnership with our stakeholders, offers educational opportunities and practical tools to benefit individuals and teams who are dedicated to improving patient safety and quality.
