Alberta Health Services

Alberta Health Services (AHS) is the provincial organization responsible for delivery of a wide scope of services and programs at over 650 health care facilities across the province, including acute, long term, palliative, mental health and community health care services. AHS is working in partnership with multiple other service providers and non-profit organizations to address the opioid crisis in Alberta.

For the Opioid Data Challenge (ODC), AHS compiled and cross-referenced data from multiple sources to provide an example of how they might achieve a cohesive picture of overdose cases in Calgary. This innovative and challenging work involved combining administrative, safe consumption site and community data. By combining resources and knowledge across AHS departments and with external partners, AHS developed a model which breaks down siloes, increased efficiencies, and enabled presentation of a more cohesive picture of the current opioid crisis.
