LATEST & GREATEST
To keep track of how Virginia performs on delivering health value and to determine how we can facilitate action for improvement, VCHI led the development of the Virginia Health Value Dashboard.
Primary care faced serious challenges before COVID, but the pandemic brought these issues to light, and in fact, made them much worse. The multi-stakeholder Task Force on Primary Care was launched to address real concerns about primary care sustainability.
The Virginia Task Force on Primary Care is pleased to share with you its full set of completed reports for SFY’23. These include three new reports — a primary care scorecard, a telehealth report, and a behavioral health report — as well as updates to Virginia’s primary care spend report, its total cost of care report, and a comprehensive report of task force activities for SFY’23.
Collectively, these six reports substantiate your concerns that Virginia’s primary care workforce is burned out, leaving the profession, and already too small to care for the needs of Virginians. Additionally, we note significant regional differences in access, utilization, and investment in primary care, with far fewer primary care providers in Virginia’s rural communities.
WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE DO
VCHI is the principal trusted convener in the Commonwealth of Virginia leading cross-sector improvement in health care value. We provide transparent and equitable access to research on and the monitoring of indicators tracking the performance of Virginia’s health care delivery system and public health system on health care value and wellbeing.
