Geographic Variation in Primary Care Need, Service Use and Providers in Ontario, 2015/16
Glazier RH, Gozdyra P, Kim M, Bai L, Kopp A, Schultz SE, Tynan AM. August 2018.
This report expands on the 2017 publication Geographic Variation in the Supply and Distribution of Comprehensive Primary Care Physicians in Ontario, 2014/15 by contributing further evidence on Ontarians’ access to and use of primary care relative to their population numbers and needs.
For each of the province’s 76 LHIN sub-regions and Toronto’s 140 neighbourhoods, six mapping techniques are used to illustrate geographic variation in aspects of primary care in 2015/16. The maps provide a visual orientation to primary care need, primary care service use, primary care providers and teams, cross-LHIN care and gaps in care across the province.
