Primary Care Networks (PCNs) are laying the groundwork for every Albertan to have a medical or health "home" anchored by a physician with the support of a broader health care team for improved access, increased services and ultimately better care. The work undertaken is designed around the College of Family Physicians of Canada's model for a patient-centred medical home.

This work is supported by several Alberta Medical Association-lead initiatives that are helping PCNs on their journey to create medical homes for patients across the province.
