The increasing global health expenditure positions primary care to use digital health technologies to manage chronic disease and deliver cost-effective personalized and preventive care. In this paper, we review the recent advancements in telehealth and big data technologies that have the potentials to move primary care services to smart environments. We adopt the smart environment concept to propose our conceptual model for a Smart Primary Care Environment (SPCE). We also identify challenges and key factors for a successful realization of the model in the future.
