  Structural Characteristics of Primary Care
When considering the attributes of primary care itself, we believe that this model serves as the cornerstone of the health services system and is the means by which the goals of that system – optimization of health and equity in the distribution of resources – are balanced.
As such, primary care can be defined as the integration of services that promote and preserve health; prevent disease, injury and dysfunction; and provide a regular source of care for acute and chronic illnesses and disabilities.
The essential attributes of primary care include the following: Primary care is first contact care; it is continuous, coordinated, and comprehensive in scope; it is community-oriented and family-centered; and it is care which is accessible, developmentally appropriate, and delivered in a culturally competent and accountable manner.

 The Seattle Times: Opinion: The collapse of primary care
One of the reasons for the rot at the core is the impending collapse of primary care, the family doctors and other health-care professionals who are the foundation of the health-care system.
The main reason is that new physicians are not choosing to pursue careers as family physicians and general internists, the two physician groups that provide primary care for adults.
The reasons for this seismic shift in medical student career choice are not hard to find: Reimbursement rates for primary care have declined, student-loan debts have skyrocketed, and the complexity of caring for an aging population has become more and more challenging.

 Primary Care Retention
Primary care workforce levels are poorly predicted by the NRMP Match, with perhaps the exception of family medicine.
In order to distribute to rural and underserved areas and to provided any consistent primary care, providers must be retained in their original choices, must remain active, and must be retained in primary care.
The standard for physician retention is over 95% remaining active and in their primary care specialty with 90% in office based care and also as much as possible away from major medical centers (over 57% outside of MMCs) where actual primary care capacity is limited by teaching, administration, hospital, and other duties.
