PODCAST: Direct Primary Care Entrepreneurship and Innovation

By Free Market Medical Association

***
DEFINITION:
Direct Primary Care (DPC) is an innovative alternative payment model improving access to high functioning healthcare with a simple, flat, affordable membership fee.  No fee-for-service payments.  No third party billing.  The defining element of DPC is an enduring and trusting relationship between a patient and his or her primary care provider.  Patients have extraordinary access to a physician of their choice, often for as little as $70 per month, and physicians are accountable first and foremost their patients.  DPC is embraced by health policymakers on the left and right and creates happy patients and happy doctors all over the country!

PODCAST: How to be a DEBT FREE Direct Primary Care Physician?

***

DEFINITION: The DPC model was created to allow for a singular focus upon the Primary Care Physician-2-Patient relationship. To achieve this, DPC removes the hassles and overhead expenses created by insurance and replaces it with a fixed monthly membership fee. This simplified approach frees the physician from meaningless paperwork and allows them to only see 8-10 patients a day. This level of personalized engagement allows them to develop a meaningful and enduring relationship with each patient.

Dr. James Hawkes grew up in a large family. His father was a U.S. diplomat, which exposed him to different models of healthcare. In addition to exposure, his grandmother encouraged him to become a doctor. He followed her recommendation but to his surprise, the definition of a good doctor wasn’t about improving patients’ quality of life it was about hierarchies, documentation, administrative requirements, and quality measures. 

***

Shortly after saying goodbye to the traditional healthcare model, he launched his own direct care practice. Fast forward to today, he is a 100% debt-free direct care physician. He shares his story of how it’s possible to achieve this goal.

PODCAST: “Cash Pay” Pharmacy

Owner of Independent Pharmacy

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 48-300x300.png

EDITOR’S NOTE: We’ve written, posted and opined on concierge and retail medicine; cash based care and direct primary care medicine, and related machinations before on this ME-P. Now, Shawn Needham and his wife, Janet, discuss starting their own, independent pharmacy in the late ’90s. At first glance, this is a success story for an independent pharmacy but Shawn explains what makes their pharmacy different in a big way.
