A study evaluated the impact of the reorganization of the academic Sepulveda (California) Veterans' Administration medical center toward primary and ambulatory care. Surveys of several thousand patients were linked to computerized utilization and mortality data and related to the center's strategic plan and goals. Substantial improvement in primary care was found. Patient satisfaction increased, hospitalizations decreased, and death rates decreased. (Author/MSE)
