CMT’s Top 20 Books for 2020: What Concierge Doctors Say They’re Reading

Read Full List of Titles | Free 

Today, the national trade publication, Concierge Medicine Today (CMT), announced its annual The Top 20 Peer-Recommended Book Titles for Concierge Medicine Physicians of 2020.

“This is the future,” said Michael Tetreault, Editor-in-Chief of Concierge Medicine Today. “Our outside perspective and vision for Concierge Medicine is that someday in the not so distant future [eg 10-20 years from now], this group of visioneering Physicians will be studied by insiders [their peers] and admired by outsiders [eg entrepreneurial leaders both in and outside] of healthcare. We’re already seeing a physician leadership culture emerge in this space that is inspiring, leading by example and inviting Patients into an environment Patients actually think is remarkable and worth sharing with others. It’s a space where Doctors are no longer burned out on their job. That’s a big deal and little is being said about it! We’re also seeing a shift in patient perception and whereby Concierge Medicine Physicians and teams are designing and creating unique healthcare environments that Patients actually want to come back to again and again. I don’t know about you, but there aren’t a lot of experiences or places in healthcare today that we feel welcome or look forward to returning to. I’m proud of the hard work these Doctors and others in and around this space are doing each day. There is so much more work to be done but if we lean in and listen, we’ll see something so unique, so different and so inviting that we’ll have no choice but to learn more about it. There’s so much we can all learn from this group of Doctors and we’ve only just started to see how they will impact healthcare in our lifetime. I encourage you to take a look at what these Doctors are reading. These titles also make a great stocking stuffer for some of your colleagues. This isn’t theory.”

Product Details

Today, it goes without saying that the majority of Physicians view their work as a sort of, well, penalty box which they begrudgingly enter every Monday morning. Worse yet, many younger medical school graduates view their future career path as one long bumpy road on the pathway to paying off debt and someday saying goodbye to their student loan debt. But there’s a reinvention of medicine taking place – it’s happening in the lives of thousands of America’s Doctors and it combines creativity with continued income and is a place where Doctors’ can finally find meaning and greater impact as they use their talents to help other people. Perhaps you need to find fulfilling ‘work’ again. Read these stories from Doctors who are and were maybe just like you. We hope that you’ll discover the meaning and purpose behind your work as a Physician.

Surviving Your Staff: True Stories and Practical Tips for Physician CEOs

 (Only available in the discounted bundle available here … $99.95) 5″ x 8″ (12.7 x 20.32 cm) Black & White on White paper 104 pagesISBN-13: 978-1975781538 (CreateSpace-Assigned) ISBN-10: 1975781538 BISAC: Medical / Administration

Your Staff, whether you believe it or not, influences the direction and quality of your practice and can shape the experience(s) [for better or worse] that patients have in the practice/program. Whether you have a small, family-like atmosphere with friendly staff whom you’ve known for years or multiple new hires that come and go … all of these people are all moving the direction of your practice, your reputation with specialists and ultimately, your influence with patients along a certain path. The question for you is, is this the direction you want to go?   books special 2018_3“A physicians reputation in the public and online is dramatically different from the patient reviews they may receive prior to a physicians entry into Concierge Medicine vs. after the conversion. Many [physicians] go from zero to hero in the eyes of their patients in a matter of weeks or months. We have also noticed that the physicians staff and their individual attitudes towards patients still remains a sore spot among the doctor’s and patients concerns. Even post-transition, when physicians are well into managing their Concierge Medicine members … managing staff inappropriately can impact the clinic’s annual patient retention and ultimately, their bottom line. However, it is amazing what can be accomplished when Physicians walk this healthcare delivery process out and into their own communities. It is only now, that when we are able to look back and track these dramatic career moves of physicians that we see why so many patient experiences make so much sense.”

concierge-medicine dpc 2 differences 20195c-20_368166892Product Details For years now, a lot of people like to compare Concierge Medicine to Direct Primary Care (DPC) and say … ‘DPC is the less expensive alternative.’ But the data, the patient interviews and the industry service offerings say something completely different. Today, the distinguishing factor differentiating DPC and Concierge Care is not price … it’s demography, insurance participation of the practice, monthly billing practices (seen at most DPC clinics) vs. annual subscriptions and what services are offered through each program. In both Concierge Care and DPC, people have inherent, not ascribed value. There’s no class order … no first class or second class, just people for whom doctors serve each day. They’ve built clinics for children, families and people who are sick … and it is these visioneering physicians who are drawing attention to the cost of healthcare across the country and designing ways for it to be available and affordable for anyone. Our latest 2019-2020 Infographic contains a lot of new information. From scholarships to staffing. We’ve even added comparison stats and figures which compare the same question asked today to how that same question performed a few years ago. You’ll be surprised by some of the figures. The numbers are what they are, and that is polling figures. Polling by definition is not an exact science. For further clarification, it is a sampling or collection of opinions on a particular subject, taken from either a selected or a random group of persons, for the purpose of analysis.[1]

Modern Clinic Design: Strategies for an Era of Change, 1st Edition

Written by Christine Guzzo Vickery (Editor), Gary Nyberg (Editor), Douglas Whiteaker (Editor) Designers not only need to know the different requirements for each of these spaces, but also understand how certain design strategies affect the patient’s experience in the space. This book explores all aspects of clinic design, and describes how aesthetics and functionality can merge to provide a positive experience for patients, staff, and healthcare providers. * Understand how recent industry developments impact facility design * Learn how design strategies can help create a positive patient experience * Examine emerging clinic models that are becoming increasingly prevalent * Analyze the impact of technology on clinic design A well-designed clinic is essential for the well-being of the patients and health care providers that occupy the space every day. The healthcare industry is shifting, and the healthcare design industry must shift with it to continue producing spaces that are relevant to ever-evolving patient and worker needs. For complete guidance toward the role of design, Modern Clinic Design is a thorough, practical reference. Written by a team of veteran healthcare interior designers, architects, and engineers, this book addresses the impacts of evolving legislation, changing technologies, and emerging nontraditional clinic models on clinic design, and illustrates effective design strategies for any type of clinic. Readers will find innovative ideas about lean design, design for flexibility, and the use of mock-ups to prototype space plans within a clinic setting, and diagrammed examples including waiting rooms, registration desks, and exam rooms that demonstrate how these ideas are applied to real-world projects. Spurred on by recent healthcare legislation and new technological developments, clinics can now offer a greater variety of services in a greater variety of locations.

Instead, guided by our parents, by our teachers, by our managers, and by psychology’s fascination with pathology, we become experts in our weaknesses and spend our lives trying to repair these flaws, while our strengths lie dormant and neglected.

Ordering Your Private World

By Gordon MacDonald We have schedule planners, computerized calendars,and self-stick notes to help us organize our business and social lives everyday. But what about organizing the other side of our lives―the spiritual side?  One of the great battlegrounds of the new century is within the private world of the individual.The values of our Western culture incline us to believe that the busy, publicly active person in ministry  is also the most spiritual.  Tempted to give imbalanced attention to the public world at the expense of the private, we become involved in more programs, more meetings. Our massive responsibilities at home, work, and church have resulted in a lot of good people on the verge of collapse.  In this timely update of his classic Ordering Your Private World, Gordon MacDonald equips a new generation to live life from the inside out, cultivating the inner victory necessary for public effectiveness.

You’re selling your training, expertise and time — a market value that isn’t necessarily easily defined.

The DPC Journal 2017-2018 Annual Report is an optimistic read that highlights the underground swell of more cash-only, subscription-based healthcare clinics, similar to the monthly Netflix model. From this report it is clear that DPC models, and the like, will continue to rise to the surface in 2019 and beyond.

LISTEN NOW TO THE LATEST EDUCATIONAL SERIES ABOUT ACTIVELY working DPC2B relationships HERE … LISTEN — DOWNLOAD NOW … “DPC2B” is a term loosely used by The DPC Journal to help educate employers, employees and Physicians. Direct Primary Care-to-Business (e.g. DPC2B is similar to B2B) and refers to a situation where one DPC Practice (usually made up of more than one location with multiple Physicians and offices in a particular city/geographic area) makes a commercial transaction or partnership with another business.

Highlights from the Report include:

  • We are following a national trend where younger DPC physicians are entering and few appear to be exiting the space in suburban markets.
  • Approximately 68% of new DPC physicians state they are between the ages of 30-49.
  • 23% of DPC Journal polling respondents indicated that they will not join another network.
  • The average wait time at a DPC practice is less than 10-minutes.
  • 16% hope DPC Doctors can work/partner with more businesses to save healthcare costs for employees in their local area.
  • 15% hope HSA and FSA integration will occur.
  • 47% of Physicians reported that they went into debt to start their DPC medical practice.
  • The DPC Journal finds that 41% of practices are female DPC Doctor-owned clinics under the age of 49. Conversely, 36% stated they are male DPC Doctor-owned practices and under the age of 49.
  • Nearly 10% of DPC Physician polling respondents stated that they believe some DPC clinics today won’t be able to stay in operation due to lack of local consumer interest. The DPC Journal also found that closures of DPC clinics are not being closely monitored nor reported.
  • Less than 18% of DPC Physician stated they believe DPC should be defined by price. A majority of Physicians believe price shouldn’t matter and that the Doctor’s service offering/membership fee should be based upon the services offered, level of education, demographics, etc.
  • In 2017, we saw subscription fee increases in monthly memberships rise by an additional $20-$50/pmpm. In 2018, nearly 8/10 monthly DPC subscription fees are now trending between $51-$99/pmpm.
  • The DPC Journal surveyed over 1,100 actively seeking patients from across the U.S. in 2017 and asked them about their overall ‘faith’ in a Physician in today’s healthcare marketplace. Nearly 60% of those participants surveyed said ‘If DPC was not an option, they would NOT select an M.D. for their next primary care visit. 34% said they would prefer to see a Doctor of Osteopathic (D.O.) Medicine; 14% would prefer to see a Nurse Practitioner (N.P.) and 7% would prefer to see a Physicians Assistant (P.A.).
