Summary

It was supported through funding provided by the Department of Health of the Province of Manitoba to the University of Manitoba (HIPC 2013/2014-29). [...] ABOUT THE MANITOBA CENTRE FOR HEALTH POLICY The Manitoba Centre for Health Policy (MCHP) is located within the Department of Community Health Sciences, College of Medicine, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Manitoba. [...] We explored access to care, type of patients served (socio-economic status, presence of chronic disease, presence of social factors impacting health, and age/sex distribution), strength of affinity to the clinic (continuity of care), and quality of care provided across the models of care. [...] It is likely that the small eligible populations for these indicators were the reason for a lack of statistical differences among the rates of the models of primary care, and had an impact on whether the social complexities were associated with the indicator results. [...] Data Validation and Panel Size To confirm that fee-for-service (FFS) and alternative-funded primary care providers submit comparable proportions of potential medical claims, we examined the proportion of billing claims preceding (by a maximum of 30 days) the dispensation of a specified list of newly prescribed drugs in the Repository.
