Open Letter to the President-Elect's Transition Team

The Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative (PCPCC) looks forward to working with the new Administration to enhance access to and the quality of primary care, to continue the expansion of the patient-centered medical home, and to advance the bipartisan work on value-based alternative payment models, especially those which result in a greater investment in primary care.

PCPCC is a collaborative health care policy organization, made up of a broad coalition of approximately 1,300 organizational members and dozens of executive members (from across the spectrum of primary care: payers, purchasers, health care providers and consumers).

Our mission is to better promote and share best practices that support the growth of high-performing primary care, with the ultimate goal being the “quadruple aim”: better care, better health, lower costs, and greater joy for clinicians and staff in care delivery. We educate and advocate for ideas, concepts, policies, and programs that advance these goals and the standards of high-performing primary care. 

For the decade since it was formed, PCPCC has advocated a vision of an effective and efficient U.S. health system built on a strong foundation of primary care and the patient-centered medical home (PCMH). A medical home, defined as a model or philosophy of primary care that is patient-centered, comprehensive, team-based, coordinated, accessible, and focused on quality and safety provides enhanced primary care services of value to patients, their families, and the care teams who work with them.

This evolving model promises improved access to high-quality, patient-centered primary care by prioritizing trusted relationships with patients, families, and caregivers; incorporating team-based care with clinicians and staff working at the top of their skill set; and providing cost-effective care coordination and population health management. 

We at PCPCC look forward to serving as a resource for your Administration regarding the current and future state of primary care and patient-centered medical homes in this country.
