ACTT undertakes a variety of streams of work. The following are current initiatives:
Meeting Patients’ Needs: Algorithm for Today’s Primary and Specialty Care Teams a stepwise approach to conducting patient care management considering the safety of patients, staff and physicians and expanded appointment modalities. The tools and toolkits associated with this algorithm will grow over time. Check back regularly.
Primary Health Care Opioid ResponseThrough the Primary Health Care Opioid Response Initiative, the Alberta College of Family Physicians (ACFP), Alberta Medical Association (AMA), Alberta Health Services (AHS) and the Zone PCN Committees aligned to support the systematic changes needed for primary care response. These groups worked together to create the opioid change package, intended to help physicians and team members implement practice changes that improve care for patients who use opioids.
CII/CPARCII/CPAR is the chosen vehicle to integrate community EMRs with two-way data flow. Community Information Integration (CII) is a system that transfers select patient information between community Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) and other members of the patient’s care team through Alberta Netcare. The Central Patient Attachment Registry (CPAR) is a provincial system that captures the confirmed relationship of a primary provider and their paneled patients. ACTT supports the implementation of this initiative with both primary and specialty care resources, tools and training.
Networks of PracticeACTT supports several communities of practice within Primary Health Care across Alberta. These networks include the Practice Facilitators Network, the Electronic Medical Record - Alberta Network, and the Physician Champion Network. These group are instrumental in creating the Patients Medical Home in Alberta. Access to these areas will require a website account.
