A recent project report released by the Duke-Margolis Center for Health Policy and JPMorgan Chase’s new health initiative, Morgan Health, presents the case for advanced primary care (APC), arguing that a new vision and approach is desperately needed to increase the effectiveness and address the rising costs of traditional, employer-sponsored healthcare.

Titled “A Pathway for Coordinated, Affordable Employee-Sponsored Primary Care”, the project report is written by authors including Mark McClellan, founding Director of the Duke-Margolis Center for Health Policy at Duke University, and Dan Mendelson, CEO of Morgan Health at JPMorgan Chase & Co. It references Vera Whole Health and the Morgan Health-Vera Whole Health partnership, as well as providing examples of what’s possible when employers unite with primary care organizations.

The authors assert that such partnerships provide companies with:

  • Access to needed capabilities
  • Person-centered, answerable payment reforms
  • The ability to provide employees with high-quality care at a more affordable price

The Duke-Margolis Center for Health Policy also released a webinar given by McClellan and Mendelson, moderated by Joanne Kenen, Politico, and including Liz Fowler, The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI), and Elizabeth Carpenter, Avalere Health. 

The webinar also refers to Vera’s work in this field and examines topics including:

  • Opportunities afforded by APC 
  • Ways for employers to lead the charge
