The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine Committee on Implementing High-Quality Primary Care will be holding a public session on January 22, 2020 from 1PM-5:30PM ET, in Washington, DC.

This committee will examine the current state of primary care in the United States and develop an implementation plan to build upon the recommendations from the 1996 IOM report, "Primary Care: America's Health in a New Era", to strengthen primary care services in the United States, especially for underserved populations, and to inform primary care systems around the world. To develop the implementation plan, the committee will consider successes and limitations of prior efforts to innovate in primary care, as well as the increasing demands and stresses on the primary care system, and will recommend ways to effectively scale and implement successful innovations and programs in U.S. health care settings.

Through the course of the study, the committee will meet several times. The public session is one of the many processes that the committee will use to gather information and assemble evidence that members will examine and discuss in the course of making the committee’s findings, conclusions, and recommendations. The focus of this public session is for the committee to clarify the scope of the charge with the study sponsors and initiate the process of gathering relevant information related to the study.

This public session will be accessible to the public via webcast and in-person attendance (seating is limited). Please register online to receive an email with the instructions on how to join this public session.
