This issue of the Journal highlights the problem-solving perspectives of primary care practices, including practice-based research networks. Informed, dedicated primary care teams are seeking incremental insight on how to use health information technology to support holistic enhancements in primary care, including how health information technology can support individual patients and how it can support care teams.
