Problems Facing Rural Healthcare Delivery
Why Focus on Primary Care? “… a greater emphasis on primary care can be expected to lower the costs of care, improve health through access to more appropriate services, and reduce the inequities in the population’s health.” (pg. 458-459) Source: Starfield, B., L. Shi, and J. Macinko. 2005. “Contribution of Primary Care to Health Systems and Health,” The Milbank Quarterly. 83(3): 457-502. “ Research studies in countries where patient-physician relationships focus on primary care consistently show that people live longer, populations are healthier, patients are more satisfied with their care and everyone pays less.” Source: Patient Centered Primary Care Collaborative.
