Primary Care

What is Primary Care?

Primary care is typically the first stop in medical care and incorporates several different types of healthcare services. This type of care is provided by doctors, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants who are responsible for addressing a variety of healthcare needs, developing a continued partnership with patients, and practicing in the setting of family and community. Preventative care, care for common illnesses or chronic conditions, healthcare screenings, laboratory services, and immunizations are all types of healthcare services incorporated in primary care.

Health history, wellness goals, and concerns are all addressed in primary care. Through routine checkups or non-emergency medical care, providers help patients achieve and maintain wellness. Primary care providers offer comprehensive care including disease prevention and screenings, diagnosis and treatment of various illnesses, education related to disease prevention and treatment, injury care, counseling, and coordination of care. For patients that have complex or severe medical problems, primary care providers refer patients to highly trained specialist and follow up with the patient and specialist to ensure top-quality care and best possible health outcomes are received.

Chronic conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), depression, heart disease, diabetes, and Parkinson’s disease require ongoing treatment and monitoring. Chronic disease management is an integrated care approach to managing conditions which include screenings, check-ups, monitoring and coordinating treatment, and patient education. It helps improve a patient’s quality of life by preventing or minimizing the effects of a disease.

Immunizations/annual flu shots help the body build immunity to life-threating diseases. They help protect various age groups against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (whooping cough), influenza (flu), and measles. By keeping vaccinations up-to-date, patients protect themselves, their families, and those within the community. Immunizations are a preventative measure. They help prevent disease that could otherwise lead to costly treatments.

Preventative care is a focus in primary care. Preventative/well visits allow primary care providers to identify potential problems as well as determine if family history or lifestyle choices could affect a patient’s health in the future. Preventative/well visits help keep patients healthy and play an important role in a patient’s lifelong health.

Preventative/well visits should be scheduled annually and allow patients to:

  • Develop and maintain a relationship with a primary care provider
  • Discuss how to start and/or sustain a healthy lifestyle
  • Screen and track diseases, such as high blood pressure or diabetes
  • Look for future disease risk, such as high cholesterol and obesity
  • Learn how to identify changes in the body that might be uncharacteristic
  • Update immunizations
  • Keep centralized records of visits to specialists, prescriptions, and health history

A wound is an injury that breaks body tissue, such as skin. There are different kinds of wounds, including cuts, scrapes, scratches, and punctured skin. The primary health risks of wounds are bleeding, infection, and potential internal damage. Wound care is the management and treatment of wounds. This is a complex topic due to the numerous different kinds of wounds that can affect health. Wounds can have complicating factors, such as infection, that can develop into larger health risks. Many people have training in first aid, and can treat minor wounds themselves or with the help of another person. Great care must be taken to prevent the wound from becoming infected. If there are signs a wound has become infected, wound infection treatment should be provided by a healthcare professional.
