Age equity in different models of primary care practice in Ontario

Editor's Key Points

  • Canada has restructured its primary care models of service delivery, shifting from traditional fee-for-service models to salaried community health centres, and to models in which remuneration is largely based on capitation (ie, health service organizations and family health networks). This is the first study to assess disparities among age groups across several dimensions of primary care performance in primary care models.
