Lower risk of death linked with access to key attributes of primary care, UC Davis study shows
Date:1/10/2012

usting for age, health status, weight, tobacco use and other health characteristics, greater reported access to the primary-care attributes was associated with significantly lower mortality (hazard ratio 0.79) during up to six years of follow-up.

"Our findings suggest that ongoing efforts to provide all Americans with a 'medical home' offering the primary-care attributes we studied could yield major public health benefits," said Jerant, referring to the national movement to ensure access to patient-centered, comprehensive and continuously available primary-care services.

The team also found evidence that racial/ethnic minorities, poorer and less educated individuals, and those lacking health insurance reported significantly lower access to the primary-care attributes than others.

As a result, Jerant and his colleagues in their study wrote, "Although the wider adoption of primary care attributes may have promise for mitigating health disparities, interventions to promote equitable access to such attributes may be required to fulfill this promise."
