Mission Statement: 
The Massachusetts General Primary Care Practice Based Research Network is devoted to providing the highest quality of care to individuals and communities served by our academic, community-based, and neighborhood health center practices. Our goal is to provide complete primary care to individuals of all ages by emphasizing prevention and health promotion through continuity with providers, and comprehensive disease management in partnership with specialist colleagues and services. As a founder of the Partners HealthCare System, Massachusetts General Hospital is committed to excellent, coordinated, and cost-effective health care throughout our region. As the oldest and largest teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School and the largest hospital-based research program in the United States, we believe high quality care is enhanced by translating research into practice, and by educating future health care leaders.
