Abstract

The person-centered clinical method (PCCM) used in primary healthcare (PHC) is a useful tool to improve a person’s approach to a health system that adequately responds to the needs of the population. PHC is built on the basis of a good health system, through compliance with its four attributes—first contact access, person focused care over time, comprehensiveness, and coordination of care—and it becomes an essential part of the growth of any nation that wants to provide quality healthcare. In conclusion, the PCCM is related to a strong PHC, as it is based on an approach focused on meeting people’s needs.
