Importance of primary care. Essential to help an individual navigate to good health and stay healthy

A primary care physician is essential to help an individual navigate to good health and stay healthy; preventing disease by identifying risk factors; coordinating and managing chronic disease care for longevity and a better quality of life.

Primary care includes family medicine, internal medicine, nursing, nurse practitioners, pharmacy, pediatrics, general ob/gyn, gerontology, behavioral health, community health, optometrists, and the other people and professions who fulfill the general medical needs of patient populations.

Primary care professionals serve on the front lines of healthcare. For many, they are the first point of contact with the healthcare system. That means they are often the first to see depression, early signs of cancer or chronic disease, and other health concerns. They ensure patients get the right care, in the right setting, by the most appropriate provider, and in a manner consistent with the patient’s desires and values. Primary care professionals are, essentially, the quarterbacks of healthcare.
