PCDC has identified key measures of primary care access and provides data for New York State counties in this Profile. We hope this Profile will help identify gaps in access and inform where additional primary care facilities and services are needed.Download Resource
The NYS Primary Care Profile presents key measures of primary care access and need for adult residents. The primary care access measures are intended to capture New Yorkers’ ability to gain entry to the health care system by having access to sites, insurance coverage to pay for needed services, and providers with whom to develop ongoing relationships to meet their health care needs.
The Profile also includes measures on New Yorkers’ need for primary care services, as defined by indicators of health status and socioeconomic position.
