A primary care renewal initiative beginning in 2006 that works with fee-for-service (FFS) physicians and clinics to improve primary care services for both patients and providers. Specifically, the four main objectives of PIN are:

  1. to improve your access to primary care;
  2. to improve primary care providers' access to and use of information;
  3. to improve the work life of primary care providers; and
  4. to demonstrate high-quality primary care, with a focus on chronic disease.
