Abstract
Properly run group visit programs offer patient-centered care that can improve access, quality, outcomes, productivity, revenues, and both patient and physician satisfaction. The ABCs of Group Visits is a concise implementation manual that guides readers through a 10-week pipeline to design and launch a successful customized group visit program in any practice, large or small. The group visit model is highly adaptable and has been used to great success for follow-up visits, physical examinations, new patient intakes, and chronic disease management (among other applications) and can offer hope to beleaguered primary and specialty care physicians, Medicare, and Medicaid. Ideal for physicians, healthcare administrators and executive leaders alike, The ABCs of Group Visits contains all the vital information to help solve many of the problems facing busy, backlogged physicians and bring joy back into the practice of medicine. "Group visits are just the type of 'win-win' innovation that healthcare needs today'improving outcomes, enhancing service, and at their best, reducing costs and burden on both clinicians and those they serve."á Don Berwick, MD, former President and CEO of IHI "Group visits offer an innovation to healthcare that can drive improvements to quality, outcomes, service, and productivity in all spheres in medicine'plus, as demonstrated in our substantial experience with them at Cleveland Clinic, yield high levels of patient and physician satisfaction in a wide variety of specialties." David L. Bronson, MD, FACP, President and CEO, Cleveland Clinic Regional Hospitals; Professor of Medicine, Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine.

Abstract
The seventh edition of this classic reference book has been vastly updated from its previous edition to reflect the many changes in clinical medicine since 2003. Although the book is intended for family physicians, the wide scope of clinical problems in the book will appeal to clinicians in many specialties. Family Medicine, 7th Edition, is a must-have reference for medical students, residents and practicing physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants involved in patient care. This book is organized into short, focused chapters almost exclusively dedicated to topics relevant to daily practice. All lead authors are accomplished family physicians who can specifically address the needs, concerns, and interests of this crucial profession. New chapters include Management of Mentally Ill Patients in Primary Care; Autism Spectrum Disorders; Care of the Difficult Patient; Alzheimer’s Disease and Other Dementias of the Elderly; Disorders of Nutrition; and Patient-Centered Medical Home.
