“Personalized application of evidence-based decisions should be the norm, and companies should provide the technology to access the most up-to-date, patient-specific evidence for a given therapeutic area or intervention, so that physicians and patients can decide together the most effective course of treatment,” says Dr. Todd Feinman, Advisory Board Member at Evidenza Precision Medicine and the Chief Medical Officer and co-founder of Doctor Evidence. “Concierge Doctors, known to be innovative and patient-centered care, are in a unique position to take advantage of the growing number of personalized data resources matched to patient profiles and preferences to improve patient care.”

Specialdocs CEO Terry Bauer, who has studied the evolution of concierge medicine since its inception in 1999, says: “This model holds the key to better care, lower costs, improved outcomes and more engaged physicians, and may be the only way to restore primary care to the way it was intended to be practiced.”
McElwain explains that the No. 1 reason he sees doctors converting their practices to purely private or partially concierge is because of the stress brought on by seeing too many patients.
“Concierge medicine affords physicians the ability to return to a much more old-fashioned style of practice where you actually had generous time to communicate with your patients and to work one-on-one with them to solve their problem and get to know them as individuals and not just a diagnosis,” says McElwain.

Ep. 53 | “Meet Chrissy Larsen, Digital Health & Wellness Tech Visionary and Founder/CEO at Why The Health Not?”
“I believe that is the way medical care is supposed to be. This kind of unfettered direct engagement between doctor and Patient can never be achieved in a system of third-party networks where the doctor is a “provider” of services paid by someone else and the Patient is relegated to a passive ‘network subscriber’.” ~Direct-Pay Physician, Dr. Robert Nelson of Cumming, GA. “Primary Care needs to become relevant again by servicing patients directly and being available and offering the kinds of broad services that family doctors used to offer. Only returning to broad-based primary care that is affordable (DPC and similar), getting back in the hospitals and being available to keep our patients out of the ER and urgent care will solve this supply-demand imbalance. This kind of approach will also drive more medical students back into primary care and restore the balance back to the ratios before managed care.”
