When primary care fires on all cylinders

Our nation’s health care delivery system falls short when it comes to disease prevention and health promotion. Can we embrace the idea of health “holism”—treating the whole person, not just the physical symptoms of a disease—into our modern care delivery and payment systems? In this episode, Wayne Jonas, MD, describes how to bring primary care back to the forefront of the U.S. health care model.

"We're helping systems around the country implement these quality improvement approaches. In shifting to this type of model, whether it's primary care or specialty care, the person is put at the center and the relationship is key...this is the fundamental principle of all good healing."
— Wayne Jonas, MD
