Primary care is the provision of integrated, accessible health care services by clinicians who are accountable for addressing a large majority of personal health care needs, developing a long-term partnership with patients, and practicing in the context of family and community. Primary care is the backbone of the health care system. Utilizing primary care physicians puts an emphasis on the physician-patient relationship by shifting the focus from physician-centred care to patient-centred care.
Primary care professionals serve on the front lines of healthcare. For many, they are the first point of contact with the healthcare system. That means they are often the first to see depression, early signs of cancer or chronic disease, and other health concerns. They ensure patients get the right care, in the right setting, by the most appropriate provider, and in a manner consistent with the patient’s desires and values. Primary care professionals are, essentially, the quarterbacks of healthcare.
Having a relationship with a primary care physician also allows the patient to become more comfortable with their provider and thereby more inclined to visit them to address health concerns before they develop into more serious issues. People might disclose important information more freely with doctors they know and trust and may then be more comfortable with following the recommendations and prescribed treatments.
Through routine check-ups and regular office visits, primary care can help to identify and manage potentially serious problems from the start. As a result, for example, adults in the United States who have a primary care provider have 19% lower odds of premature death than those who only see specialists for their care.
Primary care also lowers costs. In the United States, people who have a primary care provider save 33% on healthcare over their peers who only see specialists. Access to primary care helps to keep people out of emergency rooms, where care may cost much higher than outpatient primary care visits. Catching and treating problems early is also cheaper and more effective than treating severe or advanced illness.
