Topic Overview

Primary care is the largest healthcare delivery platform in the US, well-known to policymakers as essential to achieving the Triple Aim. Less well known is its innovative, diverse research enterprise that not only translates knowledge for the front lines but also generates new insights through creative partnerships. With an expansive portfolio encompassing chronic disease management, prevention, behavioral health integration, social determinants of health, and big data analytics, primary care research lies at the nexus of powerful, social movements. Despite its important role, primary care research is perpetually underfunded and threatened by its dependence on several small federal funding sources under siege. Join us for an exciting primary care forum as we explore primary care research’s impact on health and how to unlock its potential through thoughtful policy.
