Focus on preventative care
More time with each patient allows for a focus on preventative care and health education, creating a better patient experience.
Our concierge model allows physicians to spend more time with each patient, building a meaningful connection that benefits the patient and fulfills the physician. And this relationship allows them to focus on preventative care and health literacy, both of which have been proven to improve overall health outcomes, reduce hospital and ER utilization, and curb unnecessary testing and procedures.
Since 2002, we’ve empowered physicians to transition their practices and make an impact on the health of their communities.
We’re in tune with the challenges you’re facing, and we’re experts who can help guide you through them.
We’ve seen physician practices struggle to implement electronic health records, which can be expensive and cumbersome. Insurance reimbursement continues to decline, while overhead expenses are on the rise. Health systems are buying physician practices to improve their market share, leaving fewer independent primary care physicians. As a result, commercial insurance companies have less incentive to negotiate reimbursement rates with small practices.
