A Strategy for Family Medicine’s Future

We want to transform the family medicine specialty to ensure that we can meet the nation’s health care needs and ultimately, improve the health of every American. Specifically, this means:

  • Furthering the evolution of the Patient-Centered Medical Home
  • Advancing the use of technology
  • Ensuring a strong primary care workforce
  • Shifting to comprehensive primary care payment
Family Medicine cannot accomplish these core strategies alone

No single primary care profession could. Achieving these objectives will require that we work together with our primary care colleagues, patients, policymakers, and other key stakeholders in healthcare.

To implement the plan we have organized a volunteer workforce in seven major areas to carry out actions in pursuit of these strategies. The seven areas are: Practice, Payment, Workforce Education and Development, Health Equity, Technology, Research, and Engagement.

To complement this strategic work, Family Medicine for America’s Health has launched a communications campaign, Health Is Primary, to advocate for the values of family medicine, demonstrate the benefits of primary care and drive patient activation. To learn more, go to healthisprimary.org.
