HQCA to Release Continuity of Patient Care Study

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Dec. 17, 2013) - The Health Quality Council of Alberta (HQCA) will hold a news conference on Thursday, December 19, 2013, to release the results of its recent work, Continuity of Patient Care Study. Looking through the lens of a single patient and his journey through a serious and time-sensitive condition, the study reveals opportunities to improve Alberta's healthcare system in relation to how care is co-ordinated among providers. The study was triggered by low satisfaction and no improvement over many years in Albertans' co-ordination of care rating in the HQCA's patient experience survey.

Members of the media are invited to attend a brief presentation to be followed by a question and answer session. One-on-one interviews can also be arranged on request.
