First Annual Report from the Comprehensive Primary Care Plus Evaluation Points to Early Progress in Care Transformation

To forge a path to progress in improving health care and reducing costs, payers, practitioners, and policymakers increasingly agree that we need to strengthen primary care. Mathematica’s seasoned experts continue to lead research and provide evidence on primary care transformation to support a national shift in care delivery. Recently, Mathematica completed the first annual report of its independent evaluation of Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+), the largest and most ambitious primary care and delivery reform ever tested in the United States.

Mathematica is collaborating closely with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to assess whether CPC+ achieves its goal of increasing access to—and improving the quality and efficiency of—primary care, which ultimately is intended to achieve better health outcomes at lower cost. The evaluation also examines whether CPC+ enhances primary care physicians’ experience. The research builds on Mathematica’s evaluation of the Comprehensive Primary Care (CPC) initiative, known as “CPC Classic.”
