Welcome to Alberta’s go-to resource for reliable information about what clients experience with home care in our province. The Health Quality Council of Alberta (HQCA) believes reporting about home care, from things like client experience with being involved in making their care plan to pain management, are all important pieces of information that can lead to quality improvement and a better healthcare system in Alberta.

Starting a conversation

Why do we talk about things like supporting home care clients with regular medication reviews and whether their family doctor is informed about their home care? The healthcare system is complex and inter-related. What’s happening in primary care and pharmacy, as well as other areas of the healthcare system, can impact clients’ experiences in home care.

This section of the FOCUS on Healthcare website features 15 interactive charts that present client experience survey data. You can compare information about home care across zones and over time.

  • Why do some zones have very different results compared to others?
  • Why are there sometimes big changes over time?
  • Are there successes we can celebrate, or opportunities to improve?

This website is about starting conversations between healthcare providers, decision-makers, and the public they serve.
