Powerful forces of change are at the core of Obamacare—and they could either strengthen or destroy our family doctors. It’s a perfect storm that threatens our hope for more effective and personalized medical care and it holds the potential to drive our trusted Familiar Physicians toward extinction. In the midst of the storm is a new and promising approach within Obamacare called the medical home. Learn what you can do to help assure that the Familiar Physician, the basis for a strong physician-patient relationship, survives the approaching storm. On a national level, there are heroes here—doctors who redirected their lives to make this change happen. Not just for a few months, but for a decade-long crusade. This is the story of Dr. Peter Anderson, a pioneer in team care medicine and a passionate champion for primary care. The Familiar Physician is about the extraordinary vision of IBM’s Dr. Martin Sepúlveda and the powerful crusade of advocacy carried out by IBM’s Dr. Paul Grundy. Their ten-year quest to create solutions for this crisis in primary care has powerful outcomes. Hope is on the horizon, but the struggle is far from over.
