2023 Primary Care Pulse


About the Report

Primary care faces more challenges than ever, which is why we created this report based on a national survey of more than 200 primary care physicians (PCPs), follow-up interviews, and secondary research and analysis. 

Download the first annual Primary Care Pulse Report to learn more about challenges and opportunities across three key themes:

  • Compensation and Payment Models, including exploring survey findings that only 2 in 10 PCPs report feeling fairly compensated and 3 in 10 believe their pay allows them to provide holistic patient care.
  • Value-Based Care Adoption, including progress toward CMS’ goal of having 100% of Traditional Medicare Beneficiaries in accountable care relationships by 2030, as well as the role Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) are playing in addressing key primary care pain points.
  • Systemic Barriers to Value-Based Care, including an exploration of the payment models, care models, and insights needed to move toward more proactive, whole-person care.
