High-performing health system

The AMA is powered individually and collectively by physician leadership and stewardship in a high-performing health system.

Alberta’s high-performing health system is stable, compassionate and sustainable, delivering enhanced patient experience and improved population health. Individual and collective physician leadership is essential.

The AMA defines such a system in this way:

  • Highest quality care requiring: acceptability; accessibility; appropriateness; effectiveness; efficiency; and safety
  • Access based primarily on need, not ability to pay
  • Fully integrated community and facility/primary and secondary care
  • Management based on timely and accurate data
  • Information that follows the patient seamlessly
  • Care delivered with the patient, sharing responsibility and working with the physician toward best-possible health

The Alberta Medical Association stands as an advocate for its physician members, providing leadership & support for their role in the provision of quality health care.
