The State of Primary Care 2021

Topic Overview

As the 21st century comes of age, what is the state of primary care in the nation? How might primary care help fulfill the promise to assure access to care and the pursuit of health for every person in the nation? As the largest healthcare delivery platform in the US, primary care is the most well-known, misunderstood, and underutilized tool for policymakers to help achieve the Triple Aim: Better Care, Better Health, Lower Cost - and a 4th Aim, resilient healthcare teams finding joy in their service to patients.

Join us as we explore primary care research’s impact on health and how to unlock its potential through thoughtful policy.
