Areas of focus for the collaborative include issues such as, definition of primary care, barriers to the access and use of all the data needed to determine current and desired levels of primary care spending and how to overcome them, what the desired level of primary care spending is in the state and the annual progress needed to achieve that level in a reasonable period of time.
