Building a Primary-Care ‘Home’ for Every Ontarian

The Government of Ontario has expressed its commitment to transforming the health system into one that puts the needs of patients at its centre.  A key part of the plan to achieve the government's latest action plan is to strengthen primary care. This includes ensuring patients have a family physician or nurse practitioner as their most responsible clinical provider of care, as well as access to teams of providers when needed.  The purpose of the panel was to guide the efforts of the Ontario College of Family Physicians to promote the implementation of the patient’s medical home model in Ontario.
