Primary Care as a Common Good – The Prescription for a Healthier and More Equitable Health Care System

Posted On by

Join our Winter Conference focused on making high-quality primary care a common good to create a healthier and more equitable health care system. You’ll hear from our keynote, Rutgers University Professor Shawna Hudson, one of the authors of the National Academy of Sciences Engineering Medicine report, Implementing High Quality Primary Care. Learn how New Jersey and the nation can invest in primary care to improve health by supporting reimbursement for team-based care, expand access to care for everyone, facilitate training for care teams, design better digital health systems, and follow through with federal implementation of high-quality primary care.

You’ll also hear from a panel of our members who are working now to transform how primary care is delivered, increasing investments in high quality primary care, and supporting data use, technology platforms, and other innovations to advance primary care and better support patients.
