Returning the Primary Care Physician to the Heart of Patient Care
When it comes to quality healthcare, healthcare operations, and assessing how to improve patient satisfaction, experts across the industry are recognizing that preventive care is a crucial component.
One key may be putting the primary care physician (PCP) at the center of the patient relationship as a coordinator who can help patients better understand their care plans, adhere to medication regimens, and improve wellness to reduce visits to the emergency room, all of which meets current goals to rein in spending on emergency visits by focusing on preventive care.
Several states agree that investing in primary care is a necessary part of reducing the associated high costs of reactionary healthcare. In fact, it’s the reason that Oregon passed a mandate requiring, by 2023, 12% of its medical spending to go to primary care, modeled on an earlier Rhode Island program.
