Primary Care Innovators Network Meeting


The Power and Impact of Primary Care to Deliver Outcomes
that Matter to Patients and Employers

Primary Care practices can lower the overall cost of health care while improving the service and quality of care delivery. Effective primary care can improve the usual services patients need and reduce unnecessary hospital and sub-specialty care. Patients, practices, and employers have realized benefits in communities across the U.S. where direct contracting relationships have been established. Join us Thursday, October 5 from  8:30a - noon for a “conversation” that can build bridges to better outcomes.
