Strata Health’s journey began in 2001 with a visionary partnership with Alberta Health Services (AHS), then known as the Calgary Health Region. This collaboration produced a transformative platform, initially designed to address waitlisting and vacancy management in long-term care, with the goal of reducing Alternative Level of Care (ALC) rates in hospitals. Based on the program’s success, AHS and Strata Health expanded into Assisted Living in Calgary and later reached Edmonton, providing a robust foundation for future growth and evolution.
In 2011, AHS took Strata Health’s contract province-wide, solidifying its commitment to optimizing and standardizing patient flow across its geography. The partnership continues to evolve, extending its reach into mental health services amongst other care types, supporting equitable and transparent access to care for all individuals.
In 2023, Alberta Health Services adopted the most recent version of Strata Health’s software, introducing the following enhancements:
- Alerts: A sophisticated alert system ensures timely and proactive notifications of next steps and KPI breaches, enabling healthcare professionals to make informed decisions swiftly, thereby enhancing patient care and resource allocation.
- Enhanced Business Intelligence Tools: The latest offering from Strata Health provides comprehensive and insightful reporting functionality, granting AHS access to actionable data insights crucial for informed decision-making and continuous improvement initiatives.
- History Management: Includes archiving, purging, and additional means to manage the 20+ years of patient flow information stored in the solution.
- Advanced Roles: Additional role controls, further support the policy of minimum access required to complete job functions.
The continued evolution of this partnership stands as a testament to the power of collaboration between an innovative solutions provider and a pioneering healthcare entity like Alberta Health Services. This longstanding partnership highlights the pivotal role that Strata Health’s solutions play in shaping the future of healthcare delivery, ensuring a standardized, efficient, and patient-centric approach across the province of Alberta.
