How Does Direct Primary Care Make My Experience As a Patient Better?Oct 09, 2019
Direct primary care (DPC) is an innovative alternative to the traditional primary healthcare model, which – to the dismay of both patients and doctors – has become overly complicated in recent years due to insurer red tape. DPC is different. Instead of taking place through insurance companies, the DPC relationship occurs directly between the patient and his or her doctor. That’s it.
So, by eliminating the middleman, does DPC improve the patient experience? Many DPC members answer that question with a resounding “yes.”
A Strong & Enduring Doctor-Patient Relationship
For patients, a key benefit of DPC is unrestricted access to their primary care doctor. The emphasis is on keeping people well rather than treating them only when they’re sick. Because most primary care services are included in a set monthly membership fee, members are more likely to see their doctor when they need to. This leads to a better patient experience and, ultimately, better health outcomes.
Other benefits of DPC include:
- Same-day and next-day appointment availability
- Less time spent in a waiting room
- Unlimited and unrushed consultations
- Telemedicine via voice, video conferencing, and SMS text
- More predictable healthcare costs
