Costs of care per patient over time for each of the models of primary care in Ontario

Project ID: 2017-042/2019 0950 034 000
Type of Response: Research report
Knowledge User: Association of Family Health Teams of Ontario
ICES Scientist: Rick Glazier
Summary: Of the different primary care models which exist in Ontario (patients enrolled in Family Health Teams, patients enrolled in other primary care models, and the general population), it is unclear whether costs are decreasing. The knowledge user requests details on healthcare utilization drivers of changes in cost and whether these costs differ for patients with mental illness or multimorbidity. The information will inform discussions regarding expansion of access to team-based primary care in Ontario.
