Title Primary Care and Public Health: Exploring Integration to Improve Population Health.
Publication Date 2012

Abstract In 2010, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) was asked by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to convene a committee to study and prepare a report providing recommendations on how they, as national agencies, could work collectively to improve health through the integration of primary care and public health. The CDC and HRSA sponsorship was reinforced by support from the United Health Foundation. To conduct this study, the IOM formed the Committee on Integrating Primary Care and Public Health. This effort is not the first, nor will it likely be the last, to explore how these two sectors can complement each other and align their resources to improve population health. At the same time, the committee had a strong appreciation for the unique contributions, accountabilities, and perspectives of both sectors and respected those attributes in proposing opportunities for expanded collaboration.
