The Health Data Coalition (HDC) aims to turn clinical data into useable information and to view trends.
Funded by the FPSC, the HDC is a physician-led data sharing initiative that brings together the work of AMCARE and the Physician Data Collaborative. The HDC incorporated as a not-for-profit society in 2016.
Physicians can have access to this data through a secure, simple to use program that maintains patient and provider confidentiality.
The HDC’s EMR IT platform aggregates data from different EMRs. The information is used to support reflective practice and facilitates system changes using coaching support and small learning groups. The HDC’s technical platform contributes to achieving the triple aim by providing primary care data for:
- Individual physicians curious about their practice profile
- Small groups doing peer led learning on topics such as antibiotic stewardship and polypharmacy
- Doctors participating in FPSC programs, including Divisions of Family Practice and Practice Support Program
- MOH health system planning and population metrics
