Modernized primary care systems are founded in holistic team-based care. Many models exist in the world. However, to overcome the challenges of various physician funding models and to scale resources across the highly populated urban/suburban areas, a different approach is needed.

This paper outlines the evaluation of the model after one year in operation, highlighting critical success factors for any future centre: design, team unity and culture of learning. Recommendations for the next steps include the development of a standard blueprint, dedicated funding and a single oversight body for the creation of new centres across the province.
