High-Risk Patients and Utilization of Primary Care in the US Veterans Affairs Health System

In a new article in JAMA Network, Dr. Said Ibrahim, MD, professor of population health sciences, comments on a study regarding high-risk patients in the US Veterans Affairs (VA) health system. Dr. Ibrahim notes that the VA is uniquely prepared to lead innovative applications of data for care management, due to the size of its network and ability to allow for large-scale analysis and modeling to predict care needs and allocate resources. The study shows that there is room for improvement in how high-risk patients are assigned to specialized primary care programs, while consideration should be given to appropriately resourcing general primary care clinics to optimize care for high-risk patients.
