Direct Primary Care – New Delivery Model Gains Traction
February 1 2018 – Direct Primary Care,” or DPC, is a patient care delivery model gaining attention and some degree of utilization by physicians, particularly in the eastern part of the United States. DPC is really no more “direct” than the care we are accustomed to receiving from our physicians. But DPC arrangements may offer enhanced services, such as care management and coordination, same-day appointments, enhanced access to physicians (via, for example, text and email), and longer office visits.
