ADMINISTRATION AND FUNDING
Practices need staff and financial support, advocacy, governance, leadership, and management in order to function as part of the community and deliver exceptional care.
Governance, administrative, and management roles and responsibilities are clearly defined and supported in each PMH.
Sufficient system funding is available to support PMHs, including the clinical, teaching, research, and administrative roles of all members of PMH teams.
Blended remuneration models that best support team-based, patient-partnered care in a PMHshould be considered to incentivize the desired approach.
Future federal/provincial/territorial health care funding agreements provide appropriate funding mechanisms that support PMH priorities, including preventive care, population health, electronic records, community-based care, and access to medications, social services, and appropriate specialist and acute care.
There is evidence from across Canada that the PMH model is making a difference. Visit our Evidence page to see it for yourself!
