Quality in Primary Care

Primary Care quality refers to commitment to continuously improving the quality of healthcare, focusing on the preferences and needs of the people who use services. The goal of health care is to provide medical resources of high quality to all who need them. General practice has a key role to play in promoting health both at an individual and community level. Primary care clinicians have to increase their capacity, capability and responsibility for clinical quality improvement. Primary care practices with a vigorous QI orientation continually seek to ameliorate their own performance and the outcomes of their patients. Primary care is the cornerstone of health care that is efficacious and efficient and meets the desiderata of patients, families, and communities.
