    Primary care settings have become a gateway for many individuals with behavioral health and primary care needs. To address these needs, primary care providers integrate behavioral health care services into their practice settings. Health centers provide both mental health and substance use services. Primary care is the cornerstone of health care that is effective and efficient and meets the needs of patients, families, and communities. Our primary care system currently has significant—and perhaps unprecedented—opportunities to emphasize quality improvement (QI) and practice redesign in ways that could fundamentally improve health care in the United States.

      Primary health care (PHC) is essential health care based on methods and technology made universally accessible to individuals, families and communities through their active participation and at an affordable cost. PHC is an integral part of a country’s health system and, ideally, its main focus. It is the first level of contact for. Quality Management for Health Care Delivery provides a framework to help hospitals organize for, communicate about, monitor, and continuously improve all aspects of health care delivery. It also presents evidence to support the proposition that an organized system to achieve high quality care can lead to lower health care costs.

    Transform your primary care services — improve the continuity, quality and efficiency. Today, your patients receive care from more providers than ever before, making the partnership between practitioners, patients and their families — and the Primary Care Medical Home approach to care — increasingly important.   In the absence of a real gold standard for the definition of recovery from acute LBP or for its chronification, data from a primary care cohort of patients with acute LBP are provided to inform the discussion of (a) MIC values and (b) upper limits for pain and functional disability associated with perceived recovery at follow-up.

Nowadays, evaluating the quality of health services, especially in primary health care (PHC), is increasingly important. In a historical perspective, the Department of Health (United Kingdom) developed and proposed a range of indicators inand lately several health, social and political organizations have defined and implemented different sets of PHC quality indicators.

Primary care physicians are central and core components of any high quality health care delivery system [20, 21].These physicians provide care longitudinally and continuously [].Further, they are holistic in their approach and attend to the whole person—rather than focusing in a more disease-oriented manner [].Since we have already published a paper about clinical excellence in pediatrics.
