Abstract

Over the past few years several attempts have been made in Greece to modernize and improve the national health care services. A Health Care Reform Act has been recently approved which aims to improvement in quality and coordination of outpatient and hospital services at the regional level, through the enhancement of primary care. This paper reports a proposal for functional reconstruction of the primary care system in Greece with a major emphasis on equity quality and outcomes. The main component of the equity and quality framework of this proposal focus on the provision of essential services, and on implementation of clinical and organizational standards.
