WASHINGTON, DC USA -- HEALTHCARE UPDATE NEWS SERVICE™ -- JANUARY 18, 2021: 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.
