Webinar Slated for Tuesday, August 6 at 8:30 p.m. EDT/7:30 p.m. CDT/5:30 p.m. PDT
ROCKVILLE CENTRE, N.Y. — JULY 19, 2013 – While thousands of physicians are retiring, quitting medicine or selling their practices, the majority of remaining independent physicians want to stay that way.1 Concierge Choice PhysiciansTM (CCP), the pioneer in the innovative Hybrid model of concierge care is offering a free webinar, Tuesday, August 6th at 8:30 p.m. EDT (7:30 CDT, 5:30 PDT), to provide physicians with solutions that will enable them to generate a private source of revenue, increase patient satisfaction, remain independent and once again enjoy their profession.
Entitled, The Economics of Concierge Care, the webinar will be presented by Wayne Lipton, founder of CCP and a well-known expert on concierge medicine. Lipton will highlight how physicians can tap into the vast and growing market of patient-centric care in a way that enables them to continue in practice, remain independent and generate the revenue needed to operate a sustainable practice, all while providing greater satisfaction for patients and for themselves. To register for the webinar go to:
“The average office visit is now under 12 minutes2 and physicians are working harder, on more administrative and management tasks, than ever before; neither patients nor physicians want that type of healthcare,” notes Lipton. “Physicians used to have one of the highest levels of satisfaction with their profession, now they have among the lowest. The question is how do we get back to a model where patients come first and there are opportunities for physicians to get back to what they do best, practicing medicine. Hybrid or full-model concierge programs are the solution for thousands of physicians today.”
The free webinar will provide specific information on how Hybrid and full-model concierge programs work; their cost and risk (there should be none for physicians); projected revenues; best practices in developing and implementation, and more.
Concierge programs are becoming increasingly more attractive to patients who want to maintain relationships with their chosen physicians. Physicians in turn appreciate the independence and autonomy both Hybrid and full-model programs provide. In both models, patients pay a modest fee, often averaging less than a daily cup of latte, and in return, secure real value for their healthcare dollars through a range of attractive non-covered services such as same-day appointments, little to no waiting time and a direct phone line and/or email to the physician.
Physicians also like both models as they enable good physicians to be appropriately and fairly compensated for their time, training and experience, as well as their commitment and personalized attention to patients.
