Primary care is care doctors and other medical providers serve as the first point of contact with the healthcare system. Generally, this provider acts as the primary contact and principal point of ongoing care for patients in a healthcare system and coordinates different specialist care that the patient might need.
Primary health care may be provided in the home or in community-based settings like private medical practices, general practices, local government, community health centers, and non-government service settings. The main aim of primary care is disease prevention and health promotion. Primary care services serve to promote good health via patient education, diagnosis, and treatment of acute illness as well as manage chronic medical conditions.
