What is MyPI and how does it work?

As a physician in Alberta, you have access to various data sources that can inform your practice. Using this data to generate meaningful information and identify areas for practice improvement can be challenging, and the MyPI tool can help.

MyPI provides coaching on how to best reflect on your practice and create actionable change plans that you can implement. Most importantly, the tool helps keep you accountable along the way.

MyPI is available to all physicians across the province. You can complete independent activities, group activities, or select from a list of activity templates.
