The role of Primary Care Providers is changing and much of this is for the better. With the Triple Aim of improving the patient experience, improving the health of populations and reducing per capita costs; along with new payment methodologies, quality measures, organizational structures, and the like, primary care providers are being asked to to play an expanded role in the healthcare system; but what is that role and how can they ensure success?

During the month of July PopHealth Week will focus on Primary Care and Population Health, interviewing primary care providers and thought leaders who have developed innovative new ways to practice. We’ll explore patient centered medical homes, capitated contracts, team based care, meeting patients needs, are the incentives in ACOs large enough to change behavior, and where these trend setters believe primary care is headed.
