models that were responsible for a variety of
specific populations. This group had high
rural representation (21%), more lower
income patients and a high proportion of
newcomers. It also had slightly higher
morbidity and comorbidity than for Ontario in
general and ED visits that were slightly lower
than expected.
patients that were not seen at CHCs and
were not rostered in a patient enrolment
model formed the third-largest group
examined (after FHGs and FHOs). Unlike the
other groups, it had a higher proportion of
males than females and it also had a much
larger proportion of children, especially in
rural areas. Its sociodemographic profile was
similar to that of the province as a whole but
it had a many more health care non-users
than any other group and a pattern of lower
chronic disease, morbidity and comorbidity. It
had slightly higher than expected ED visits in
urban and rural areas.
