Unique new program gives patients a heightened practice experience with a renowned local pulmonary and sleep medicine specialist
ROCKVILLE CENTRE, N.Y., May 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Concierge Choice Physicians (CCP), the nation’s leading full-service concierge medical service provider, today announced that Joseph Ojile, MD, a pulmonologist with one of the largest private practices in St. Louis, is now offering the company’s Hybrid Choice™ program. Hybrid Choice is an enhanced concierge model that allows for greater connectivity between doctor and patient. By offering Hybrid Choice, Dr. Ojile can provide to his patients all of the benefits of concierge medicine in his specialty practice setting.
CCP’s Hybrid Choice is uniquely suited to specialists like Dr. Ojile. Unlike traditional concierge programs, Hybrid Choice allows the specialist to continue to see all patients, even those with appointments for episodic care and/or consults. The program is simply an option for those patients who see the doctor on an ongoing basis and would like more support to help manage chronic or multiple conditions. It allows them to secure the additional service, time, and connectivity that can be difficult to get in a busy medical practice. The program works well for specialists because, by maintaining their traditional practice and accepting insurance plans as before, they are able to continue to grow their patient panels through valuable referral networks.
Dr. Ojile began practicing as a pulmonologist more than 30 years ago and has seen the healthcare marketplace change and add significant pressure to his practice. As he watched patients try to navigate an often-complex medical system, he knew he wanted to explore a new approach. “My patients are like family, and while I wanted to change my practice, I didn’t want to do anything that would compromise my relationship with them. I wanted to do something to enhance our relationship, and this program does just that,” said Dr. Ojile. “I see all my valued patients just like before—but now I can offer a high-touch, high-service program to those people who could use more support and advocacy.”
Dr. Ojile’s practice, Caduceus Corporation, offers diagnostics and treatments for a variety of pulmonary conditions. He is also a pioneer in the field of sleep medicine, serving as founder, Chief Executive Officer, and Medical Director of Clayton Sleep Institute (CSI), a sleep medicine clinical and research organization.
Wayne Lipton, managing partner of CCP, points out that the company’s greatest area of growth is in specialty fields. “We are proud to work with renowned specialist Dr. Joseph Ojile and his patients,” says Lipton. “Many specialists are now feeling the same pressures that primary care doctors have been feeling, and the right membership model is a great solution that supports specialists and their patients.”
