  • Starfield Summit V: Advancing & Improving Measurement and Value in Primary Care (AIM-PC)

    Four Virtual Events, March – July 2022

    Primary care is where most outpatient healthcare is delivered and where more than one-third of all visits take place. However, how primary care clinician decisions and behaviors affect total costs of care is poorly captured and understood by payors and policymakers. Initiated in 2016, Starfield Summits were created as multistakeholder discussions on topics of critical importance to primary care, intended to inform and create movement in research, policy, training and practice.

  • Setting a Research Agenda for the Use of Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning in Primary Care

    March 18-19, 2021

    With the digitization of everything from videos to voices and documents, artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) have revolutionized industries, including medicine, but have yet to transform primary care. A review of primary care AI/ML concluded that the field remains in “early stages of maturity,” despite a history spanning nearly 35 years. Only 1 out of every 7 of these papers includes a primary care author; therefore, one barrier to greater impact is engagement from the primary care community.
