About CEPC

The Center for Excellence in Primary Care (CEPC) identifies, develops, tests, and disseminates promising innovations in primary care to improve the patient experience, enhance population health and health equity, reduce the cost of care, and restore joy and satisfaction in the practice of primary care.

Primary care is endangered in the United States. From failures to adequately invest in primary care to changing population health needs, primary care confronts major challenges worldwide. CEPC was created to respond to these challenges. Founded in 2005 by the Department of Family of Community Medicine at University of California-San Francisco, CEPC identifies, develops, tests, and disseminates promising innovations in primary care to improve the patient experience, enhance population health and health equity, reduce the cost of care, and restore joy and satisfaction in the practice of primary care. CEPC provides training in team-based care, offers practice facilitation to spur and support transformation, broadens the evidence base through research and evaluation, and advocates for policy that promotes high performing primary care.

The Facilitating Care Integration in Community Health Centers report and the supplemental resources on these web pages were created by CEPC with funding from Blue Shield of California Foundation. The principal authors of the report are:

J. Nwando Olayiwola, MD, MPH, FAAFP

The content of these web pages and the Innovator Highlights were created by CEPC project manager and research analyst Ashley Rubin, MS.
