Health Homes

What is a Health Home?

Primary Care Networks (PCNs) are laying the groundwork for every Albertan to have a medical or health “home” anchored by a physician who has the support of a broader health care team.   This results in improved access, increased services and ultimately better care.

In The Aspen PCN, patients of all participating family physicians and Nurse Practitioners have access to centrally located multi-disciplinary health care teams at two Health Home locations in Athabasca and Westlock.   Additionally, several family practice clinics within the PCN have on site PCN Nursing staff as part of their team within the clinic.

Our Health Home and Clinic based teams increase supports for patients managing chronic diseases such as diabetes, COPD, etc. and also provide coordination and navigation to access additional community and other health resources and improve care to the patients we serve.
