A stronger primary health care system is one that yields better health outcomes for Canadians at a lower cost.

A key part of improving the primary health care system is to measure how it performs.

  • Where does it succeed?
  • Where does it need to be improved?


The goal of our research program is to improve both the science of performance measurement and the ways those results are reported to practitioners, decision-makers, and the public to encourage improvement within the system.
