The Primary Care Physician (PCP) in our organization
--- Accountability for outcomes: The PCP demonstrates
accountability for outcomes, strong clinical care, and
cost-effectiveness for each patient in their panel of up to 450
patients. They understand that they can strongly influence the
patient's outcomes by building a trusting relationship and helping
them change behaviors.
--- Coaching for health: The PCP acts as a health coach, rather
than just a consultant for sickness, by helping patients set short
and long-term health goals, partners with the patient to work
toward the goals, and frequently follows up on those goals on the
path to improved health for their patients.
--- Simplifying for action: The PCP simplifies and prioritizes
appropriately so that behavior change is more actionable, both for
the patient in helping them achieve their goals, and when leading
their care teams towards their performance goals.
We are an outcomes-focused, value-based organization and for their
panel of patients, the following metrics are regularly measured to

CGCAHPS (patient experience), clinical gaps closures, and medical
cost measures. Each PCP will have goals for these metrics and will
be expected to work towards those targets with their center and

our organization and centers, they are expected to help champion a
