About Primary Healthcare

Primary healthcare is a healthcare system that supports Albertans to be as healthy as they can be.

Primary healthcare draws on the expertise of many different providers working together to provide seamless care by sharing:

  • perspectives
  • expertise
  • resources
  • accountability

It is important for health professionals working in primary healthcare to have access to the latest, evidence-based resources, tools and education to assist with the delivery of quality care to patients.

Primary Health Care Integration Network

The Primary Health Care (PHC) Integration Network is focused on improving transitions of care between primary healthcare providers and acute care, emergency departments, specialized services and other community services.

This will support Albertans to get the care and social supports they need in the communities where they live.
