Innovations in Primary Care: What’s in the ACA?
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act aims to move the health care system away from an episodic, fee-for-service approach and towards a coordinated, preventive model of care delivery. Exactly how does the law encourage innovations in primary care? What roles will states and purchasers of care play in this transformation? This December 13 briefing, cosponsored the Alliance for Health Reform and The Commonwealth Fund, explored this and related questions.
