May 2022: Professionalism that Supports Patient Care with Robert Phillips, MD, MSPH

What is the value of primary care? In this episode, Dr Saccocio speaks with Robert Phillips, MD, MSPH, executive director of The Center for Professionalism & Value in Health Care, about the the Center’s efforts to change the ways in which health care professionals are measured and valued. “Our goal is to create a bucket of high-value measures for primary care that are used to measure us and pay us and that we can use to assess our health systems and create pressure for our health systems to support us in delivering those values.”
