Physician’s Weekly co-hosted another installment of the #PWChat series on Wednesday, February 13. Molly Rutherford, MD, MPH, FASAM, (@UnbridledMd), joined us to discuss what you and your patients need to know about direct primary care. Topics discussed included: what exactly direct primary care is and what sets it apart from traditional primary care; what differentiates direct primary care from concierge, or VIP, medicine; whether or not it is unfair to claim that direct primary care caters to wealthy, health patients and why, and much more!

Below are the highlights from the chat. You can read the full transcript here, by scrolling down to the corresponding responses.
