Abstract

Increasing attention is being paid to the measurement of outcomes in primary care. However, many of the methods proposed are measures based on readily collectable data or standardized population measures of health status. These may interest population scientists but are unlikely to satisfy most primary-care clinicians. The reason for this dissonance is that the population measures do not reflect the complex and personal nature of primary care. Quality measures are needed that have validity to clinicians and patients. An alternative classification is proposed which is based more formally on the functions of primary care. This would appear to provide a framework which is more likely to be valued by those who provide primary care. The need for further research and testing of some outcome measures is identified.
