Increasing administrative responsibilitiesdue to regulatory pressures and evolving payment and care delivery modelsreduce the amount of time physicians spend delivering direct patient care. In the intensive primary care model, the team takes care of a targeted panel of patients with multiple chronic conditions. This approach allows practices to devote the time and develop the appropriate skillsets needed to address the complex medical needs of these patients, whose health care goals would likely not be met during a typical short primary care visit. In certain health care populations, five percent of patients account for approximately 50 percent of health care costs. Primary care practices may be unable to effectively accommodate the complex needs of these patients. Building an intensive primary care practice that addresses the needs of patients with complex health issues requires engaging patients in a shared vision for a better future. This module will help physicians identify patients in need of expanded primary care services and design an intensive primary care model that will fit the needs of patients with complex health conditions.
