Objective:

To evaluate and analyze the patient experience of residents contracted with primary medical institutions, for providing a basis for improving quality of contracted family doctor services.

Methods:

Using the Chinese version of the primary care assessment tools(PCAT), a household survey was conducted on 1 400 contracted residents in 9 community health service centers and 9 township health centers in a city from May to June 2020, and their medical experience in primary medical institutions was statistically analyzed. At the same time, interviews were conducted with institutional managers and family doctors. Descriptive statistics and one-way ANOVA were used for data analysis.

Results:

1 333 valid questionnaires were collected, and the effective recovery rate was 95.2%.The total PCAT scoring was 25.17. Seven dimensions of first contact, continuous, coordination, comprehensiveness, patient and family centered, community-oriented and cultural competence scored in average 3.57, 3.68, 3.54, 3.40, 3.72, 3.67 and 3.59 respectively.372 people(47.1%) had not been referred by the contracted institution before going to the superior hospital or specialized hospital. There were significant differences in the scores of four core dimensions in different types of institutions, age, education level, occupation and income( P<0.001).

Conclusions:
