This study compares clinical encounters in 20 U.S. practice-based research networks (PBRNs) with those of the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NAMCS) and finds that there are important differences. For example, a larger proportion of the PBRN visits involve preventive care and were made by children, members of a minority racial group and individuals who did not have private health insurance. The authors state that this information fulfills a need for more comprehensive information about primary care clinicians, their patients, and services they provide that can be used by researchers, policy makers and the public. Such information may help to identify strengths and additional area for improvement in services.
