Patient-Centred Primary Care in Canada: Bring it on Home – College of Family Physicians of Canada – Discussion Paper – October 2009

“The College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) recommends the introduction of the medical home concept for the people of Canada; incorporating the strengths of medical home models elsewhere in the world with the primary care renewal experiences currently unfolding across Canada.

A medical home is a patient-centred medical care setting where: 1) patients have a personal family physician who provides and directs their medical care; 2) care is for the patient as a whole; 3) care is coordinated, continuous and comprehensive with patients having access to an inter-professional team; 4) there is enhanced access for appointments; 5) the practice includes well-supported information technology, including an electronic medical record; 6) remuneration supports the model of care; and 7) quality improvement and patient safety are key objectives.”
