Public Health Readiness and Role in Transformation to a Community-Based Primary Healthcare System

Brent W. Moloughney


Millar et al. provide a high-level vision for transforming primary care into a community-based primary healthcare system, arguing that public health involvement is critical to the success of this transformation. The authors discuss a number of approaches to mitigate challenges to public health's readiness to participate. In this commentary, the author addresses selected points encouraging the avoidance of high-level conceptual language, a focus on specific value-added linkages and addressing the complex range of critical success factors needed to effect this transformation.
