Somé NH, Devlin RA, Mehta N, Zaric GS, Sarma S. Team-based primary care practice and physician’s services: Evidence from Family Health Teams in Ontario, Canada. Soc Sci Med. 2020;264:113310. doi:10.1016/j.socscimed.2020.113310.
Summary of Findings:
This study looks at the impact of switching from non-Family Health Teams to Family Health Teams (FHT) on the production of capitated comprehensive care services, after-hours services, non-incentivized services, and services provided to non-enrolled patients by family physicians. The study found evidence of improved access to physician’s services under team-based primary care, but switching to FHTs has no effect on the production of after-hours services and services provided to non-enrolled patients.
