Business Plan and Budget
The AMA's Business Plan and Budget links the ends of the organization (established by the Board of Directors and Representative Forum) with the means (managed by staff). The plan focuses on organizational goals and plans for moving toward those goals during the October 1 to September 30 AMA year.
Vision and Mission
Learn about our vision and mission. Alberta's physicians are committed to a health care system that facilitates wellness and delivers patient-and family-centered care.
Key Results Areas, Goals and Priorities
Flowing from the vision and mission, the AMA has aligned activities and resources under the three broad categories we call Key Results Areas (KRAs): Financial Health; Well Being; System Partnership and Leadership. The Board of Directors has then established two to three long-term goals (five to 10 years) under each KRA and identified two to four priority activities to be pursued in 2015-16 to help achieve these goals.
Key Result Area 1
The AMA assists and supports members in maintaining their financial health, including negotiating with payers to ensure fair compensation, the provision of practice management services and the offering of financial products.
Key Result Area 2
The AMA supports members in maintaining a healthy work-life balance, including being a leader in the development of a comprehensive physician health program.
Key Result Area 3
The AMA supports members in their role as leaders within the health care system, including supporting physician leadership in developing innovations in care delivery through PCNs, strategic clinical networks (SCNs) and other initiatives.
