Will 2022 be the year concierge medicine shifts from niche solution to mainstream model?
January 2022 | With the advent of COVID-19, the last two years for physicians have been daunting to say the least. From shrinking revenues, increasing practice closures, and burnout reaching astonishing levels, physicians these days are taxed to the limit in order to remain independent. This is why now more than ever, a shift to a concierge medical practice has become more practical than a mainstream medical practice.
There’s no minimizing the tumultuous impact of the last two years on every patient, every part of the healthcare system, and on all physicians. Working harder than ever but feeling threatened by shrinking revenues, an ongoing surge of practice closures, and dwindling options for remaining independent, physicians were experiencing burnout at alarming new levels.
