This report examines patients/clients from April 2008 to March 2010 in: Community Health Centres (CHCs, a salaried model); Family Health Groups (FHGs, a blended fee-for-service model); Family Health Networks (FHNs, a blended capitation model); Family Health Organizations (FHOs, a blended capitation model); Family Health Teams (FHTs, an interprofessional team model composed of FHNs and FHOs); ‘Other’ smaller models combined; and those who did not belong to a model.
