About Alberta Virtual Care Coordinating Body

The Alberta Virtual Care Coordinating Body (AVCCB) is a self-governing entity that promotes  optimized virtual care for residents of Alberta. The AVCCB was created through the cooperative efforts of a broad representation of Alberta health sector stakeholders, including government, regulators, health authorities, professional associations, and Indigenous and patient representation. The AVCCB  functions under the shared authority of all cooperating members, to set a consensus policy approach to virtual care in Alberta, and is governed according to the Collective Impact framework, established at Stanford University in 2011

The rationale and approach to the creation of the AVCCB is captured in the founding report Optimizing Virtual Care in Alberta - 2021
