As noted in the Institute of Medicine’s seminal report Crossing the Quality Chasm: A New Health System for the 21st Century, “health care today harms too frequently and routinely fails to deliver its potential benefits.” For over a decade, foundations have been showcasing to the field that improving health care quality is both needed and possible. GIH recognizes that this work is now an integral part of the health reform law and that bridging the “quality chasm” will require change at all levels of our health care system.

In a new article in the Journal of General Internal Medicine, health researchers from Mathematica Policy Research examined how primary care physicians were affected by one of the largest primary care transformation efforts, the Comprehensive Primary Care (CPC) initiative. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services led the initiative alongside 39 private and public payers. The researchers conducted two surveys of primary care physicians working at CPC and matched comparison practice sites, one in the first year of the initiative and one three years later, toward the end of the initiative.
