New article published — “Financial Implications of the Continuity of Primary Care”

This newly published article demonstrates how a patient’s level of attachment to a primary care practice, for patients with high needs for medical care, is related to health care costs.  We found that attachment to a primary practice is a much stronger predictor that age, gender, size of practice and other cost related variables.
The article is published in the 2015 Winter edition of The Permanente Journal, an international peer reviewed journal covering medical sciences, social science in medicine, and medical humanities.  See our article here .
