On November 25, 2015 the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences (ICES) released the report Comparison of Family Health Teams to Other Ontario Primary Care Models, 2004/05 to 2011/12. This report compares outcomes of Family Health Team (FHT) patients in relation to other major models of primary care in Ontario over time.
This report was developed as input to the longitudinal study An External Evaluation of the Family Health Team (FHT) Initiative, commissioned by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. AFHTO prepared a summary on the external report for AFHTO members in December 2014.
This comparison report was also released in tandem with a second report, Examining Community Health Centres According to Geography and Priority Populations Served, 2011/12 to 2012/13: An ICES Chartbook, which was created as a companion piece to the FHT report.
