The Health Data Coalition (HDC) is a not-for-profit organization funded by the General Practice Services Committee. HDC is a physician-led data sharing network that encourages self-reflection and practice improvement in patient care.
HDC Discover provides access to a secure, core set of anonymized aggregate data, while maintaining both patient and physician confidentiality.
Our software connects data from the various electronic medical record systems (EMR) used by primary care physicians across British Columbia by automatically and securely transferring core sets of standard aggregated data from your EMR system to its web-based application.
HDC was established in April 2016 through a merger of AMCARE and the Physician’s Data Collaborative to support a network of physicians for the collaborative use of clinical data.
Mission and Vision
Our mission is to provide trusted and meaningful access to health information to support new knowledge, improvement of patient outcomes, and the sustainability of health care.
We envision a system where health data is shared and transformed into knowledge and wisdom for better care. Our work is patient-centred; the ultimate value of our efforts will be seen in improved outcomes for patients.
This approach supports the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s Triple Aim framework: improving the patient experience of care (including quality and satisfaction), improving the health of populations, and reducing the per capita cost of health care. HDC also supports the aim of optimizing the provider experience by supporting learning and practice improvement within a community of trusted colleagues.
