Primary Care Doctors in Canada
The Primary Care Doctors industry in Canada, which includes general practitioners who provide a comprehensive first point of contact and continued care, has exhibited moderate and steady growth over the five years to 2019. Demand for primary care services has grown organically due to demographic changes such as the aging of the population. With the incidence of degenerative medical conditions increasing with age, the older population has also necessitated greater spending on industry services. As the overall population grows, other demographic groups have contributed to steadily increasing demand for industry services. Industry growth has also been fuelled by the government’s commitment to increase primary care access. A majority of funds spent on physicians is derived from provincial and territorial governments, although payment to primary care service providers occurs at the regional level.
The Primary Care Doctors industry in Canada includes general practitioners who possess a Doctor of Medicine (MD) or Doctor of Osteopathy (DO) degree. These doctors primarily work using a broad understanding of all illnesses and do not restrict their practice to one particular field of medicine. Doctors in this industry are trained for comprehensive first-contact and continued care for individuals with any undiagnosed health concern.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
