2 Evidence for benefits of Primary Care: “… helps prevent illness and death, regardless of whether the care is characterized by supply of primary care physicians, a relationship with a source of primary care, or the receipt of important features of primary care… associated with a more equitable distribution of health in populations.” - Barbara Starfield (2005) “…available evidence confirms improved population health outcomes and equity, more appropriate utilization of services, user satisfaction and lower costs in health systems with a strong primary care orientation.” Atun R (2004) What are the advantages and disadvantages of restructuring a health care system to be more focused on primary care services? Copenhagen, WHO Regional Office for Europe

3 Primary Health Care Charter “Family physicians are the cornerstone of Primary Health Care. They are part of a broader community network and professional team…”

4 Ministry of Health Services + Doctors of BC Operational rather than structural solutions Input from Health Authorities Responsible for: -Care incentives (fee codes) -Practice Support Program (PSP) -Divisions of Family Practice -A GP for Me “Finding solutions to support and sustain full service family practice in British Columbia” General Practice Services Committee (GPSC)

5 Experience of Care Improved Experiences for Patients and Providers Per Capita Cost More Sustainable Health Care System Population Health Improved Health of the Population Triple Aim

7 Evidence from BC 7 “…the more higher-care-needs patients were attached to a primary care practice, the lower the costs were for the overall health care system (for the total of medical services, hospital services, and drugs). The majority of the cost reductions stemmed from decreases in the costs of hospital services.” - Marcus Hollander Healthcare Quarterly, Vol 12 no 4, 2009

27 27 Integrate and Navigate Primary and Community Care - Supporting Frail Seniors 1.Creation of meaningful connections between clients’ GPs and case managers. 2.The expansion of the care management team to include a Surveillance Nurse (SN) and a client services assistant (CSA). 3.Incorporation of the CARE Management approach into daily practice by Case Managers and the SN

28 28 Progress to Date Integration Achievements 2010 - 2014 CompletedPotential 1.# HH Offices with Surveillance Nurse Implemented 12 2.# HH Offices with Client Services Assistant Implemented 12 3.# Divisions of Family Practice connected to HH offices 10 4.# GPs engaged across all communities 405 5.# Home Health Long Term clients impacted -10,015 6.# Clients with the Surveillance Nurse -2,500

29 29 Impact of the Surveillance Nurse on Client Outcomes  Clients with the Surveillance Nurse (SN) are 3.2 times more likely to survive in the community than clients not with the SN.  Clients who are with the SN and who are contacted more frequently by the SN, survive for longer in the community.  A CARE Management approach appears to delay death or transition to AL /RC.

30 30 Survival In the Community (SN vs non-SN clients, N=590)

31 31 Survival In the Community ( Total N= 954) Clients who were seen less frequently by SN ( who had 1 or 2 RVs n=408) Clients who were seen more frequently by SN ( who had 3 or more RVs n=546) Days between initial call from SN to any adverse event (AL, RC or Death)

32 32 Added Value & Impact 1. Case Manager – GP Connections: “This is the missing link..” Surrey Case Manager “I met (Case Manager) last week. It was one of the most productive 20 minutes I’ve spent in medicine. She had a list of my patients on her books. We decided on the best way to contact each other quickly…(This initiative) is a wonderful positive example of the new relationship between MOH, BCMA & HA’s. When something is so right for your patients, it’s obvious” Dr. Ralph Jones (Chilliwack Family Physician / President, SGP) “Very efficient use of my time, a no-brainer.” Dr. Robert Hepburn, Surrey Family Physician
