On March 13, 2020, the Larry A. Green Center, in partnership with the Primary Care Collaborative, launched a national survey to better understand the response and capacity of U.S. primary care practices to COVID-19, as well as the potential impact of the pandemic on primary care. Last month was Series 27 of the survey.
- Despite significant strain, primary care continues to address growing patient needs, with four in 10 clinicians increasing support for patients with food, housing, or financial insecurities during the pandemic. Although expanding services, as well as their capacity to provide mental health support, practices remain financially fragile.
- Eight in 10 report practice revenue is more than 10% below pre-pandemic levels. Based on pandemic experience, 75% of clinicians do not believe fee-for-service should account for the majority of primary care payment.
The Larry A. Green Center’s Quick COVID-19 Primary Care survey is an ongoing survey aimed at understanding the response and capacity of U.S. primary care practices to COVID-19. Data from the survey is regularly shared with the Biden Administration, Congress, and are used by multiple media outlets in their reporting. Please complete the survey and feel free to share the link with your colleagues.
