Primary care improvement is viewed as a critical starting point for transforming health care systems and improving access and quality of care. This view reflects on the evidence related to the primary health care system and its contributions to health system performance and population health at the system level. In order to realize these benefits in the Nova Scotia context, the model recommended to organize one function of the primary health care system, that is PRIMARY CARE DELIVERY, is the health home, with a high-performing interprofessional collaborative family practice team forming the basis of the health home. Enhancing person-centred, high quality, safe and sustainable care for Nova Scotians is a strategic priority of the Nova Scotia Health Authority and investing in the community-based primary health care system to increase the number of collaborative family practice teams working in a health home model is a key step to achieve the health authority’s vision: Healthy people, health communities – for generations.
