Emphasizing community-based primary care as the dominant mode of clinical practice presents an opportunity for greater self determination among retirees, dependents, and active duty personnel. Physician certification of patients' knowledge of personal profiles, problem lists, medication lists, and plans--described as the tools of primary care--permits patient and doctor agreement on mutual agendas of prevention as well as treatment. This opening for primary care involves interaction among all three of the variables in classic medicine--doctors, illnesses, and patients.
