Split between two physical offices across the city, Little Rock Family Practice Clinic (LRFP) is a 12-physician practice serving patients of all ages. Founded in 1963, LRFP has a location in West Little Rock and a second site in the central part of the city. LRFP serves approximately 31,000 patients across the two sites, and each provider sees anywhere from 25‒40 patients each day. The physicians are assisted by three care coordinators, a dietician, four health maintenance staff, and as of recently, a full-time in-house pharmacist. The practice is one of an original 69 practices around the state chosen to participate in the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation’s Comprehensive Primary Care (CPC) initiative.

This study is part of a series of case studies spotlighting practice transformation to the PCMH model, emphasizing how individual practices have approached innovation and implementation.
