A new Milbank Memorial Fund-supported study from the Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative and the Robert Graham Center estimates 5.6% of health care expenses in the US goes to primary care. This is dwarfed by shares absorbed by hospitals, other physicians, and pharmaceuticals-and by the roughly 14% of total health care spending OECD countries devote to primary care.
The Care Transformation Collaborative of RI (CTC-RI) and Providence Community Health Center are hosting the “Integrating Medication Assisted Treatment and Primary Care Summit” and we would like to invite you to this special event.
We are excited to welcome keynote speaker Colleen T LaBelle, MSN, RN-BC, CARN from Boston Medical Center, and Program Director for the State Technical Assistance Treatment Expansion Office Based Opioid Treatment. She will be discussing lessons learned and opportunities for primary care enhancements in delivering medication assisted treatment for addiction disorders.
