Direct Primary Care
Direct Primary Care (DPC) stands as a transformative force in healthcare. It offers a paradigm shift that champions lower costs, superior outcomes, and heightened satisfaction for both patients and providers. By working outside or around (but not directly) with insurance, DPC minimizes administrative overhead. This translates to reduced overall healthcare costs. And, it allows providers time to really provide primary care. It empowers providers to deliver unhurried, personalized care, which is what primary care should be! It’s not just sick care. There is time for proactive well care. With extended appointment times, physicians in DPC forge deep connections with patients and have time to be proactive. This tends to lead to better health outcomes. In this innovative model, the harmony of lower costs, improved results, and heightened satisfaction heralds a promising era in primary care.
