BC doctors are invited to participate in a workshop to learn about select data tools available to assist with the implementation and evaluation of patient medical homes and primary care networks.

Hosted by the GPSC and the BC Primary Health Care Research Network, the workshop will be held on Friday, March 8, 2019 from 1:00pm to 4:30pm in Vancouver. See details below.

The workshop will focus on:

  • Health Data Coalition (HDC) 
  • Canadian Primary Care Sentinel Surveillance Network (CPCSSN), with additional discussion on a team-based care evaluation framework under development
  • GPSC PMH Assessment 
  • GPSC Patient Experience Tool

Presenters will highlight how their respective data tools support panel management, quality improvement in practice, team-based care, and/or the formation of clinical and community networks. Through presentation, discussion, and demonstrations, this workshop aims to increase participants’ understanding of the tools, and will be an opportunity for participants to share feedback about the select data tools.


The GPSC has funding available to sponsor participation of family doctors and divisions of family practice delegates in this workshop. Sponsorship will cover:

  • workshop registration fee;
  • travel (per GPSC expense guidelines), and;
  • GP time at the workshop at the sessional rate (for BC GPs only).
