Panel and Continuity Resources

Continuity allows for improved patient care over time with a primary care provider, and for connection across healthcare events and all providers involved in a patient's care. 

Evidence shows that patients who consistently see the same physician use significantly fewer health care services, have better outcomes and lower costs. The higher the level of continuity between physician and patient, the better the clinical care, improved efficiency and patient and physician satisfaction. In addition, the value and essential role of the primary care team to continuity, of which physicians are members of, has been anecdotally and substantively demonstrated.
