  • Part 2 explains why primary care transformation is important and the evidence that support enhancements like payment reform, Patient-Centered Medical Home care delivery models, and population-based registries.

  • Part 3 makes the case for patients taking control of their health through increased education, a strong relationship with clinicians, and self-management.

  • Part 4 presents information about primary care’s workforce shortages and maldistribution, while also analyzing the capacity of different professions to help address these issues.
