Promoting a Direct-Medicine Business Model

By Staff Reporters

LibraryThe Society for Innovative Medical Practice Design (SIMPD) is an organization of physicians promoting a direct financial relationship with their patients in order to restore the integrity of the patient-physician relationship.

It is their mission to ensure that physicians and patients retain the right to design and implement practices that enhance the effectiveness, efficiency, service, and value of healthcare www.SIMPD.org


Goals and Objectives

  • Educate individuals, employers, and physicians about why returning to a system where doctors work for patients, not insurance companies nor the government, is the only feasible way to control escalating healthcare costs.
  • Equip established physicians with the means to convert their practice to a direct pay model and help those who already operate a direct practice to grow.
  • Convince lawmakers that the only cure to our broken medical payment system is to redefine health insurance and allow doctors to work for our patients, instead of insurance companies and the government.


SIMPD Members believe that direct medical practices are possible in most markets.  Local demographics will dictate the structure of each individual practice. 

Some colleagues call direct medicine the next generation of concierge medical practice. They suggest this is not just healthcare for the rich as portrayed by the media.  But, it is a significant component of the cure to our broken healthcare system. What do you think?
