Implementing High-Quality Primary Care

This Connection Session is designed to inform attendees about the Implementing High Quality Primary Care report of the National Academy of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine consensus committee and to prepare attendees for its release in 2021. The committee is examining the current state of primary care in the United States and developing an implementation plan to build upon the recommendations from the 1996 IOM report, “Primary Care: America’s Health in a New Era.” The committee’s recommendations and implementation plan aims to strengthen primary care services, especially for underserved populations. The committee’s 21 members represent many facets of the primary care team, and the 18 study sponsors consist of many primary care organizations, philanthropies, and federal agencies.
