About the Reports

The HQCA has provided Primary Healthcare Panel Reports upon request to family physicians across the province since 2011. This free resource is an invaluable tool to support and inform program planning, panel management, quality improvement, and policy development at various levels of the primary healthcare system.

The Primary Healthcare Panel Reports (Panel Reports) use administrative health data from Alberta Health and Alberta Health Services to provide information about a physician’s patient panel. The measures are organized into the following topic areas:

  • practice characteristics
  • panel characteristics
  • preventive care
  • chronic conditions

  • pharmaceuticals
  • lab utilization
  • utilization
  • COVID-19 vaccination data

Panel reports are confidential and are provided only to the requesting physician. Primary care networks, clinics, and physician care teams can only receive panel reports if the physician provides written permission for the report to be shared.
