Health system outcomes and measurement framework

Description

The purpose of this Framework is to provide a clear vision of health system success by identifying the outcomes Alberta's health system is expected to achieve, as well as some of the measures that might be used to monitor performance. These outcomes and measures will provide the basis for public reporting on Alberta's health system. The Framework will serve as a foundational document for Alberta's health system, as it will help define medium- to long-term strategic directions and support strategic planning by Alberta Health and Alberta Health Services. It will also ensure that investment in the health system supports achievement of the outcomes. The Framework will also enable comparisons of Alberta's health system performance to results achieved by other provincial jurisdictions and by other developed countries with comparable health systems. Beyond public reporting, the Framework will help to guide the selection and development of outcome measures to drive health system improvement and investment in areas of strategic importance, and disinvestment in other areas.
