Practice Transformation Series: Identifying the optimal panel sizes for primary care physicians
Maintaining the relationships between patients and physicians is the foundation of primary care. The ability of a physician to build and sustain these relationships depends on the patient panel size. A patient panel is a group of patients assigned to one specific physician or clinical team. The Identifying Optimal Panel Size for Primary Care Physicians module is designed to provide step-by-step instructions on how to adjust panel size for patient and practice variables. Setting up appropriately sized panels prevents under-utilization of physician skill, avoids the stresses on physicians and their care teams, facilitates equitable compensation, and develops sustainable models of primary care.
