The effects of a people-centred model on longitudinality of care and utilization pattern of healthcare services--Brazilian evidence.

Ferrer AP, Brentani AV, Sucupira AC, Navega AC, Cerqueira ES, Grisi SJ - Health Policy Plan (2014)

Bottom Line: Bivariate and multivariate analyses were performed including patient-related variables (age, maternal education, income and type of diagnosis) and care model.Both the care continuity dimension and the utilization pattern of care services showed a link with the care model offered.Findings suggest that the FHS care model, based on the assumptions of people-centred medicine, was associated with better ratings of care continuity, which was reflected in a more appropriate utilization pattern of care services.

czu077-F1: Type of service sought when a child (or adolescent) gets sick or needs orientations, according to the care model

Mentions: Due to the relevance of the findings, the affiliation degree scores were presented separately (Figures 1–3). Regarding the degree of affiliation, the possible answers were: Yes or No, and when the answer was ‘yes’, they were asked which health service was considered for the answer. The analysis took into account the proportion of each of the service types responded (PHC services, emergency services and other) in relation to the care model (traditional and FHS).
