In its broadest look yet at primary care spending, the PCC analyzed spending over time, nationally and in all 50 states, and has published the results in a new report. The report reveals some alarming trends: The U.S. health system’s investment in primary care is low and declined between 2017 and 2019, both nationally and in a majority of states. The findings of the report, Primary Care Spending: High Stakes, Low Investment, are concerning given that a growing body of literature shows that health systems with a foundation of robust, comprehensive primary care achieve better, more equitable health outcomes and are less costly. This webinar will walk through the findings of the report, and then two experts—one from the health plan perspective and another from the state health policy perspective—will discuss how federal and state policymakers might leverage these results to enhance primary care investment.

The program will feature leading ACO experts and CMS officials sharing timely and essential information for ACOs and the broader value-based care community. 

As of mid-January:

Depending on the advice of public health, state, and local officials, we may be able to hold some in-person events in Baltimore on April 26-28 as originally planned, but we simply don’t know yet. We plan to make a decision about in-person events sometime in February, which is when we will open registration for the conference. A hybrid event (held both online and in-person) is a possibility. Regardless of whether we have an in-person option, the entire conference will be live-streamed online and also available to download.
