There are a number of measures that AHS monitors internally to help inform us about some other areas of the health system.
These monitoring measures do not have targets and some of these measures do not have benchmarks across the country for comparison. However, these measures are familiar and of interest to Albertans and are available here.
The most recent quarterly report reflects the year’s previous quarters as well as previous fiscal years. These reports will be updated quarterly effective 2017-18.
The Annual Monitoring Measures are only reported annually such as life expectancy, immunization rates and cancer screening.
Archived Monitoring Measures
The previous years monitoring measures are available here.
Some of these monitoring measures were part of previous quarterly reporting. These are related to health care access and based on requests we receive for this information, are of the most interest to Albertans.
AHS is tracking 13 measures which align with the 12 objectives outlined in the AHS 2017-2020 Health Plan and Business Plan. These measures are a blend of new and some of the previous 17 measures.
These 13 performance measures are used to monitor how our health system is performing. 11 measures are reported quarterly and two are reported annually and will be included in the year-end AHS Annual Report.
