  1. Adjusted for age, sex, rurality, number of cardiovascular-related comorbidities, and year of data collection
  2. * p < 0.05: Indicates that payment model has a significant effect on the delivery of the specified indicator
  3. p < 0.017: p-value limit for between group comparisons was corrected using a Bonferroni correction factor
  4. AOR = Adjusted Odds Ratio, CI = 95% confidence interval on odds ratio
