Divisions of Family Practice

With Divisions’ access to HDC Discover, you can now gain clear visibility of chronic disease trends to help you prioritize resources for your community.

Divisions regularly undertake various initiatives to address specific areas of patient care, such as patients with mental health and substance use challenges, COPD, or diabetes. With data insights from HDC Discover, Divisions can create patient support initiatives that are the most relevant to their Division, based on collective data from physicians’ EMRs, conveniently aggregated to a single view.

“I am excited to be part of the launch of division access to HDC Discover, as it will provide our division and our soon to be established Primary Care Network (PCN) with private, secure, and easy access to up-to-date primary care aggregate data from our six neighbourhoods. This data will help our PCN leadership decision-making on how to better support physicians and patients in our community.”

“It’s easy to logon to HDC Discover and play around with it. I was able to see so much in regards to my own practice and how I was doing compared to my community as well as the province. It really has changed how I conduct quality improvement in my clinic. If I had to say one thing to my colleagues across BC it would be that if you spend a little time doing the work initially, the improvement in patient care and income will happen as well.”
