Crowfoot Village Family Practice (CVFP), a medical home to over 25,000 people in Calgary, Alberta, and the Airdrie & Area Health Cooperative (AAHC), an organization serving the city of Airdrie and surrounding areas, will share their population health innovations. Discover how CVFP’s leadership, vision, and values-driven culture resulted in population-based quality improvements: same day access (reduced wait times from 15 to zero days); an estimated $6M in cost savings associated with reduced emergency department usage and hospital length of stay; and improved health outcomes.
