Let’s step outside the traditional health system where patients face difficulties in securing appointments and take a look at a new emerging trend – Concierge medicine.
With concierge medicine Patients receive same day visits, longer appointment times and round-the-clock access by phone, text or e-mail in exchange for a monthly or annual fee.
The Benefits of Concierge Medicine for the Patient
Concierge medicine allows time for doctors to actually engage with their patients more fully and do everything from walking with them to teaching good health care. In turn this means Doctors can focus more on prevention.
A British Medical Journal study showing health outcomes of Qliance, a direct primary care group offering Concierge services found patients experienced “35% fewer hospitalizations, 65% fewer emergency department visits, 66% fewer specialist visits, and 82% fewer surgeries than similar populations.”
