Glossary Definition

Last Updated: 2016-11-15


The PIN FFS model of primary care engages primary care providers involved in PIN using Quality-Based Incentive Funding (QBIF): pay-for-performance funding that is provided to clinics meeting quality targets on certain CIHI primary care indicators, modified by a committee of relevant stakeholders. The funding provided to clinics meeting these quality targets is in addition to the usual FFS funding mechanism. The main objectives of PIN are to improve the public’s access to primary care, the primary care providers’ access to and use of information, the work life of all primary care providers, and to strive for high-quality primary care, with a focus on chronic disease.

For more information on the PIN FFS model of primary care, please read section 2. PIN FFS (Physician Integrated Netowrk (PIN) Fee-For-Service (FFS)) in the Models of Primary Care Delivery concept.
