How We Work
The Health Quality Council of Alberta gathers and analyzes information, monitors the healthcare system, and collaborates with Alberta Health, Alberta Health Services, health professions, academia, and other stakeholders to translate that knowledge into practical improvements to health service quality and patient safety in the healthcare system.
Our work is guided by three core elements:
The Health Quality Council of Alberta Act
An act that sets forth our responsibilities to measure, monitor and assess patient safety and health service quality.
Our Strategic Framework
While our responsibilities are set forth in the Health Quality Council of Alberta Act, our work is guided by our Strategic Framework.
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.
