Abstract

With evidence suggesting that primary health care can lead to increased quality and safety of health care, we examined the relationship between the presence of a medical home and the safety and quality of health care in Canada. Our results conclude that the presence of a medical home is associated with improved self-reported access to health care services, coordination of and confidence in services received, and provider knowledge and fewer medical errors.
