The 10 building blocks of high-performing primary care.

Our experiences studying exemplar primary care practices, and our work assisting other practices to become more patient centered, led to a formulation of the essential elements of primary care, which we call the 10 building blocks of high-performing primary care.
  1. leadership
  2. data-driven improvement
  3. empanelment
  4. team-based care
  5. patient-team partnership
  6. population management
  7. continuity of care
  8. prompt access to care
  9. comprehensiveness and care coordination
  10. a template of the future
The building blocks, which represent a synthesis of the innovative thinking that is transforming primary care in the United States, are both a description of existing high-performing practices and a model for improvement. Ann Fam Med. 2014 Mar-Apr;12(2):166-71
