New data is available on our FOCUS on Emergency Departments website. The update includes first quarter (April, May and June) data from 2018-19.

Visit FOCUS on ED to see the most recent data:


The Foster Open Conversations that Unleash Solutions (FOCUS) on Healthcare initiative is a dynamic online reporting tool developed by the HQCA. The tool allows users to navigate data through user-friendly, interactive charts. Content on the site is specific to Alberta and includes patient experience data, health outcome data, and where possible, economic data (cost-effectiveness) across a variety of sectors of healthcare.

The FOCUS on Healthcare website is a new and unique way for the HQCA to deliver on its mandate to monitor and report on health service quality and patient safety for Albertans. This work started with FOCUS on Emergency Departments, published in January 2017. The HQCA’s vision for the FOCUS project is outlined in this fact sheet.
