Media Advisory

Integrating Primary Care and Public Health: IOM Report Release March 28
Released: 3/21/2012

Despite their shared goal of promoting people’s health, primary care providers and public health professionals have largely worked separately, which can result in missed opportunities to take advantage of the strengths of both fields. Primary Care and Public Health: Exploring Integration to Improve Population Health, a new report from the Institute of Medicine, examines what it will take to catalyze greater coordination and collaboration between the fields and specific ways that two key federal agencies - the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Health Resources and Services Administration - can foster this integration.
