Primary Care Needs Assessment
The Primary Care Needs Assessment identifies the areas of Utah with the greatest unmet primary healthcare needs and helps determine how these needs will be addressed. The findings from this assessment will help Utah’s Primary Care Office (PCO) to pursue relationships to foster collaboration and information sharing to address disparities. PCRH will also consider the expansion of programs, as well as develop and support sustainable frameworks for new programs that will help address these disparities. The assessment looks at the overall picture of the state of Utah, the demographics of Utah, and how they affect access to primary care services. It also examines where the workforce shortages currently exist, and what primary care needs exist throughout the state.
