Research efforts are a critical part of advancing primary care. Whether those efforts are focused on clinical care, healthcare services, or payment reform, the research is essential in furthering the Shared Principles of Primary Care. In addition, the research can help build a base of proven data, showing that improving the quality and patient-centeredness of primary care lead to better health outcomes. 


Some of the recent research efforts include, but are not limited to:

  • Primary care investment at the state level
  • EHR 
  • Social support
