Studies show that when patients are asked what they want from their doctor visits, their number one answer is personalized care and information. But this necessitates a patient-first mentality, which is sorely lacking in the traditional healthcare system. Forced to keep up with ever-increasing insurance company requirements, many physicians are left with precious little time to spend face-to-face with their patients, often leading to cookie-cutter diagnoses and trial-and-error treatment plans, with patient education usually falling to the wayside.
What’s more, personalized healthcare is a two-way street in which information must flow freely between patient and doctor. As privacy concerns continue to grow, some patients are understandably hesitant to open up to a doctor they don’t know well, mainly because they don’t know where that sensitive information might end up.
Direct Primary Care (DPC) Takes Patient Education to the Next Level
DPC is a fresh take on the traditional primary care delivery system. The DPC healthcare relationship is directly and solely between patient and doctor, and there is no need for either party to work through an impersonal insurance company. While the DPC model is “new” in some ways, it actually takes the practice of medicine back to its common-sense roots, when doctors had time to get to know their patients because they weren’t forced to practice medicine under the tight reins of insurers.
At Optimum Direct Care, a DPC practice in Orlando, FL, we always put our patients first. We also believe that – of all places – a doctor’s office should be a safe haven where people feel completely secure and comfortable.
