Connecting Vulnerable Population Clinics
The Division and Fraser Health co-lead a committee with representation from clinics serving vulnerable populations in Abbotsford. Clinics include the Salvation Army Clinic, the Foundry, PARC, Matsqui First Nations, Sumas First Nations, and the Access Clinic. The committee regularly makes quality improvements to support providers and patients. The clinic teams are increasing patient health outcomes. An analysis of acute care avoidance showed significant reductions in projected ER visits and hospitalized bed days.
