AAFP National Research Network (NRN)
The American Academy of Family Physicians National Research Network (AAFP NRN) was established in 1999 to cultivate, conduct, support, promote, disseminate, and advocate for primary care research in practice-based settings.
The AAFP NRN assists in realizing overall strategies for achieving improved primary care for the nation. This includes asking important questions and advancing evidence related to practice transformation, health information technology (HIT), population health, cost reform/new payment models, and team-based care.
