Efficient Primary Care Optimizes Health Outcomes of Common Chronic Illnesses

Countries that provide quality primary care have better health outcomes.

In Spain, almost 40 years ago, community health centers were built within 15 minutes of every Spaniard. In the US, centers like these with assigned primary care doctors can potentiate wellness and avoid unnecessary hospitalization and illness. This would keep the overall costs of healthcare down.

These are not new concepts in the U.S. for anyone currently with health insurance, but making sure everyone has a primary care physician nearby might be something to consider.

I wonder what the cost-benefit of these local health centers would be when studied. What do you think?

Enjoy your day!
