New online tool to help Albertans understand health system

June 11, 2018

CALGARY — The first module of Healthcare 101 – a new online information series – is now available to help people who live in Alberta better understand their health system.

The first module, Healthcare Basics for Albertans, is now available on the MyHealth.Alberta.ca website. This module focuses on putting Alberta’s healthcare system into perspective and outlining the foundation and partners of our healthcare system, including government and non-government organizations, services and resources.

Healthcare 101 is a collaborative project. Throughout the design process of the first module, citizens, organizations and departments within Alberta Health Services were engaged to contribute input and feedback. Future modules will be developed and once complete, Healthcare 101 will help Albertans better navigate the healthcare system and take a more active role in their healthcare journey.
