Primary Care Visit Cadence and Hospital Admissions in High-Risk Patients

The article from AJMC investigates the association between frequent primary care visits and reduced hospitalizations among high-risk patients with congestive heart failure (CHF) and/or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) during the COVID-19 pandemic. It concludes that patients who maintained a high cadence of primary care visits had significantly lower rates of hospitalization compared to those with fewer visits.
