Report Finds New Model of Health Care Can Improve Quality and Efficiency and Enhance the Financial Viability of Family Practices
A report published today as an online supplement to the November/December 2004 issue projects that implementation of the New Model of care recommended in the recently released "Future of Family Medicine" report would enhance the financial viability of family medicine practices, many of whose survival is endangered by their place on the front lines of a failing health care system. The report also projects that the patient-centered New Model of care, with its emphasis on electronic health records and primary care, would lead to improved quality of care for patients and significant savings for the U.S. health care system. The findings are based on practice- and societal-level financial models developed by the national consulting firm, The Lewin Group.

The report calls for the development of a 'proof of concept' National Demonstration Project to pilot test the New Model in 10-20 family medicine practices across the country. This November, the American Academy of Family Physicians approved funding for the development of the Project. Following on the recommendations of the report, the AAFP also approved the creation of a New Model Practice Resource Center to provide on-going consultation and support to the demonstration practices and to family medicine practices across the country looking to transition to the New Model.
