Join us February 13 at 3:00PM EST for part a live, interactive tweetchat with Molly Rutherford, MD, MPH, FASAM, (@UnbridledMd) on what you and your patients need to know about direct primary care. Points to be discussed are subject to change but will likely include:
- 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.
- What Dr. Rutherford believes makes direct primary care preferable to urgent care/minute clinics/convenience clinics as well as to telemedicine.
- Whether or not specialties other than primary care can adopt a direct primary care model, and if so, how.
- What makes direct primary care, according to Dr. Rutherford, an ideal option to help address physician burnout in traditional primary care.
- Other issues of traditional primary care that direct primary care can/does help address and how.
