How Today’s Newest Models in Primary Care can Support a Better Primary Care Experience Tomorrow
The U.S. spends twice as much on our health care per person than any other developed nation, yet our health outcomes remain behind those of our peers. Political leaders and industry experts alike have made limited progress in transforming our health care system to one that better prioritizes patient health. Despite ample research showing that high-quality primary care is associated with better patient outcomes and a reduction in overall health care costs, the U.S. continues to underinvest in and under-prioritize primary care.
Hear from Primary Care for America members as they discuss what it will take to create a health care system built on primary care for a healthier and stronger population.
- New models of primary care are meeting the current healthcare worker shortage and helping primary care reach a new generation of professionals.
- Technology can create success by design in value-based payment models of primary care, accelerating its impact in comparison to traditional fee-for-service primary care models—design technology for the unique needs of primary care.
- The healthcare system needs more primary care specialists and fewer subspecialists.
