This week, we take a deep dive into the benefits and problems facing primary care physicians, through the lenses of a family physician and an academic team. Kevin Grumbach, MD, explains to PW Editorial Board Member Alex McDonald, MD, why change is needed now in primary care or the “critical sector to the health of our people is about to implode.” Also, Steven Atlas, MD, discusses his JAMA study results, which turned up some important deficiencies in systems for managing abnormal cancer screening test results that can ultimately improve prevention in primary care.
