New approaches to chronic disease management emphasize the need to improve the delivery of primary care services to meet the needs of chronically ill patients. This study (1) assessed whether chronic disease management differed among 4 models of primary health care delivery and (2) identifi ed which practice organizational factors were independently associated with high-quality care.

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.
