Primary care is health services that cover a range of prevention, wellness, and treatment for common illnesses. Primary care providers include doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants. A primary care practice serves as the patient’s entry point into the health care system and as the continuing focal point for all needed health care services.
Among the challenges that primary care physicians are facing, an increasing number are becoming employed by hospitals or corporate entities.
As primary care evolves from fee-for-service to value-based care reimbursement, new primary care models and providers are emerging. Sites of care are also moving from clinics to virtual platforms, care at home, and pharmacy retailers, among others.
A number of recent acquisitions and ongoing consolidation by market participants and new large scale entities are disrupting the primary care market.
