The PCPCC 2019 Executive Report provides quantitative data and analysis of primary care spend at the state and payer levels, as well as a window into the association between primary care spend and key patient outcomes. In short, the report shows that primary care investment as a percentage of total health care expenditures was low between 2011 and 2016, and it varied considerably across states and across payers. The analysis also shows an association between more primary care investment and better patient outcomes. Finally, the report includes a description of legislative/regulatory efforts in 10 states to measure and report on primary care spend and to shift more resources into primary care.
