How should we organize and pay primary care physicians to improve the quality of care? This remains a central, unanswered research question in health policy. Fifteen years ago, the government of Ontario introduced a suite of primary care reforms with the goal of improving quality yet the results have been mixed. Changes included the introduction of formal patient enrolment, blended capitation, and team-based care. Research is needed to understand how these and subsequent reforms have impacted quality. Research is also need to inform future primary care policy change including potential changes in physician payment, composition of teams, the role of walk-in clinics, accountability for timely access, and rational measurement for quality improvement and understanding system performance.
