BestPractice: Primary care panel reports for Saskatchewan physicians

BestPractice panel reports provide Saskatchewan's primary care physicians with accessible and relevant information about their patient population – including demographics, continuity of care, health service use, and prescribing.

How can the Best Practice primary care panel reports can be used?

The information in the primary care panel reports is intended to help family physicians in the province:

  • Ensure their patients are getting appropriate preventive and chronic disease care;
  • Improve how they run their practice;
  • Identify what’s working well, and where they can improve their care delivery;
  • Find opportunities to prevent unnecessary visits to Emergency, or admissions to hospital; and,
  • Look for ways to improve patients’ access to them.

Who are the Best Practice primary care panel reports for?

BestPractice Panel reports are currently available to all Saskatchewan family physicians. Over time, panel reports will likely also be made available to specialist physicians as well.

How were the Best Practice primary care panel reports developed?

The BestPractice physician panel reports are the product of close collaboration between the Saskatchewan Medical Association, Health Quality Council, Department of Academic Family Medicine, University of Saskatchewan and the Saskatchewan College of Family Physicians, to ensure all family physicians have regularly updated practice data not previously available in this province.
