Strategic Clinical Networks
Strategic Clinical Networks (SCNs) are working to reshape health care in different areas of health to help AHS and its zones provide a patient-focused, quality health system that is accessible and sustainable for all Albertans.
To help reshape health care each network will work towards:
As a provincial health care system AHS has the opportunity to learn from and share best practices all across the province. We also have the opportunity to work together to develop new and innovative ways of doing things that can be shared province wide.
As SCNs move forward they will be expanded and integrated into the work we do and the care we provide every day. Helping us to learn more about what’s working, what can be done to make it work better and even what’s not working.
Who’s involved in the networks?
Anyone can be involved in the work SCNs are doing. The core teams of each network include representatives from health care professions, government, research and academic partners, community and not-for profit groups and patients and their families. By drawing upon the experience and expertise of everyone involved in health AHS will be able to best meet the needs of patients.
