Some primary care doctors are promoting a team approach to help maintain healthy patients and lower medical costs.

“Patient Centered Medical Home is not a place. It’s a system of care,” said Paul Gregerson, who runs the nonprofit John Wesley Community Health Institute. It has six clinics in Los Angeles County.
