Title: Advisory Committee on Training in Primary Care Medicine and Dentistry. The Redesign of Primary Care With Implications for Training. Eighth Annual Report to the Secretary of the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services and to Congress (May 2010)
Abstract: This report describes the need to redesign primary care health training to address the upcoming shortage of primary health providers in the U.S. by developing initiatives to fill the gaps in the primary care workforce rapidly, changing the support system to promote efficient inter-professional models of care, and aligning financial incentives to support primary care to achieve the desired access, quality, and efficiency outcomes in patient care. It discusses the impact of Title VII, section 747 programs on the Nation’s supply of primary care clinicians, presents recommendations to bring about direct improvement in these programs, and addresses Federal policies necessary to support primary care as the backbone of the health care system. The report includes figures, references and case studies.
