Abstract

General practitioner (GP) systems were proved to be effective in over 50 countries worldwide. Guangdong province, as a reform pilot in China, initiated its patient-GP contract reform in 2014. And the local residents acted less positively than the government expected to. Aimed to assess contract rate of residents and its influencing factors, we conducted a cross-sectional questionnaire survey covering 951 participants from 16 primary health care (PHC) institutions that were randomly chosen from 4 cities in Guangdong in 2015. We collected variables associated with the contract behavior recommended by related studies and ran the logistic regression model to test their influences. Results showed 57.83% of participants contracted with a GP within one year post-reform. Influencing factors were age, education level, self-reported health status, chronic diseases, acquaintance to GP and satisfaction of PHC institutions. Measures should be taken to increase residents’ awareness of GP and providing high-quality primary care.
