This project will be the first to test empirically the relationship between organizational attributes of primary care practices and the value of care provided to patients, and how these value‐producing attributes vary across different subgroups of patients with high needs. The subgroups for this analysis are patients with chronic illness, frail elders, and patients with disabilities. The project has three aims: 1) measure the prevalence of value‐associated organizational attributes across a random sample of primary care practices that care for patients in each subgroup; 2) examine how these attributes relate to practices’ cost and quality performance for each subgroup; and 3) explore these attributes qualitatively to understand how they may affect practice performance.
