Developing Frameworks and Models for Translating Research and Innovation in Primary Care into Healthcare Policy and Practice
Healthcare reform encourages new delivery models and research by endorsing a need for strong primary care systems through national policies such as, the Affordable Care Act, Annual Wellness Visits, RBRVS Reform, and Meaningful Use.
The Johns Hopkins Primary Care Policy Center (PCPC) combines the research base of the Johns Hopkins University with the practical experience of faculty, staff, consultants and students by engaging in research, analysis and education concerning the organization, financing, and mode of delivery for health care, particularly to underserved and vulnerable populations.
- Federal Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC) supports the PCPC to conduct short-term policy and long-term applied policy research that can help inform public policymaking in health care.
- National Institute for Health Care Reform (NIHCR) contracts with the Center for Studying Health System Change (HSC) to conduct health policy research and analyses to improve the organization, financing and delivery of health care in the United States.
