Model Of Care
Our comprehensive care model was developed in 1999 as a special initiative led by the Crowfoot Village Family Practice doctors. Working with Alberta Health Services (former Calgary Health Region), the Alberta Medical Associate and Alberta Health and Wellness, the Crowfoot Practice has moved to a model that includes all major components of primary care reform recommended by the Romanow and Mazankoski reports. These include:
- An Electronic Medical Record
- A multidisciplinary health team with a strong role for nursing staff
- 24/7 access to health services
- Measurement of health outcomes
- An alternate payment method
In this model our practice receives a monthly fee from Alberta Health and Wellness to provide all primary health care services. To be a part of the practice, patients enrol by filling out an enrolment form. This is forwarded to Alberta Health and Wellness to attach your health care number to our clinic. Enrolling with CVFP does not change a patient's access to specialty care or any other health services available in Calgary. Our practice has a close partnership with Alberta Health and Wellness, Alberta Health Services, Calgary Zone, and many regional services are provided at CVFP.
Since transforming our family practice in 1999, we have been uniquely successful in Alberta and we are proud of the improvements in care we have achieved. The Health Quality Council of Alberta studied ten-year outcome data on our original group of over 10,000 patients. CVFP patients visited the emergency department 13% less than the Calgary average, and were admitted to hospital 17% less than average. This is a tremendous accomplishment, related mostly to improved management of chronic conditions and improved access for urgent problems.
