A Bit of Primary Care History
Up until probably the 1980s, the idea of the basic doctor’s office was a regular resource available in most towns. However, as insurance companies and big hospital operations started spreading out, a lot of small doctor’s offices were either integrated into these bigger networks or the physicians that offered them retired. The idea of the basic doctor service started to disappear. As a result, in the last 40 years, the idea of going to the doctor has morphed into going to a doctor’s office as part of an HMO insurance network.
However, something started happening in the 2000s. Smaller clinic services and doctors’ offices started sprouting up again because networks were pulling back from rural and suburban areas. It was simply getting too expensive for them to provide primary care services on every main town corner. That allowed for the return of the primary physician again, and chiropractors have been helping fill that gap as well.
Why Primary Care Services Are Important
Why does the above matter? While the emergency rooms at hospitals handle critical serious issues such as serious traffic accident injuries and very bad sicknesses, primary care services address just about everything else, from the basic preventative care checkup to handling basic broken bones, the flu, allergic reactions, and initial diagnoses. Primary care services provide the medical care most people need 90 percent of the time.
Everything from vaccines to sore throat examinations is the bread and butter of primary care services. And there is a fair number of pediatric care issues as well. Primary care physicians are one of the most frequent doctors people will see in every stage of their lifetime, and the role is probably one of the most underrated in medical importance.
