Direct Primary Care is Emerging as a New Healthcare Model

Direct Primary Care: An emerging practice model

Even with insurance, rising healthcare costs can make it difficult for patients to receive the care they require. Direct primary care (DPC) is a payment model that allows family physicians to charge patients a monthly, quarterly, or annual membership fee that covers all or most primary care services. In comparison to traditional fee-for-service insurance billing, DPC can provide patients with significant savings and the freedom to visit their healthcare provider as needed without fear of financial inability.

Benefits of Direct Primary Care

Independent primary care providers are committed to providing their patients with high-quality care. They enjoy interacting with patients and strive to improve the provider-patient relationship. One method they've discovered for increasing the amount of time they can spend with each patient is to transform their practice into a Direct Primary Care (DPC) practice. Patient engagement is very important to physicians. PatientMD platform can help to maintain accurate patient data that is accessible seamlessly and securely. DPC physicians can spend more time with patients and less time on administrative duties, which can be made even easier with PatientMD. DPC physicians can maximize the quantity and quality of time they are able to dedicate to their panel. PatientMD is always excited to help independent physicians as they focus on providing the highest quality healthcare to their patients.
