Benefits and Challenges of Primary Care

Benefits and Challenges of Primary Care

When implemented correctly, primary care is very beneficial for the health of patients and also reduces the financial burden on the public health system. This is partly because of fewer hospitalizations and less need for secondary and tertiary healthcare services.

Other benefits of primary health care include:

  • Increased access to healthcare services
  • Improved quality of health care
  • Focus on preventive health
  • Early intervention to prevent health conditions from developing
  • Improved patient relationships
  • Reduced need for specialist care
  • Economic benefit in the form of several linked jobs

However, there are also several barriers that inhibit the benefits of primary care. A shortage of primary care physicians is a significant challenge, and the demand for new practitioners is currently growing at a faster rate than the supply. Additionally, the quality of care is variable between different practitioners, regions and countries.

After-hours care is typically available in less than half of primary care centers.
