For Delaware's primary care doctors, exciting times are ahead

Despite spending more per capita on health care than all but two states and ranking 30th in America’s Health Rankings, Delaware only spends 3 to 4 percent on primary care services — half the national average. States such as Oregon and Rhode Island have shown that increasing primary care spending to 10 to 12 percent or more improves health outcomes and decreases overall health care spending.

Since many other practice transformation measures hang in the balance, I would hope the Collaborative considers primary care spending its top priority.
