SILVA, Viviane Aparecida Alvares da; BARBOSA, Allan Claudius Queiroz  and  ROCHA, Thiago Augusto Hernandes. Performance of physicians in family health - an analysis from the guiding principles in a Brazilian municipality. Rev. Adm. Pública [online]. 2015, vol.49, n.5, pp.1237-1262. ISSN 0034-7612.

From the guiding principles of primary care (AP), defined by Starfield, this article analyzes the extent to which performance of the doctors of the Family Health Strategy (ESF) contributes to the consolidation of these principles. For this purpose, it was carried out a descriptive study in which performance indicators were used, deployed from six guiding principles of the ESF, in order to measure the performance of these professionals in the city of Belo Horizonte. The results generally indicated that the performance of the family's doctor underpins the achievement of the guiding principles. According to the literature, the results of multiple regression analysis showed that the health team's performance influences the doctor's performance, which reinforces the importance of adopting medical performance evaluation models that consider multiple determinants.
