Primary care in the United States is in the midst of transformation. Primary care practices are increasingly being held accountable for providing comprehensive, timely, patient-centered care. The UCSF Center for Excellence in Primary Care (CEPC) has developed a framework for primary care transformation – the 10 Building Blocks model. Drawn from the experiences of high performing primary care practice, the building blocks provide a roadmap to improvements in patient experience, population health, and the sustainability of primary care.
The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) is a leading university dedicated to promoting health worldwide through advanced biomedical research, graduate-level education in the life sciences and health professions, and excellence in patient care. It is the only campus in the 10-campus UC system dedicated exclusively to the health sciences.
