The crucial question for physicians in traditional fee for service, volume based practices is what does successful change look like in an era characterized by continual uncertainty?
The window of opportunity to realize the proven, transformative rewards of concierge medicine is wide open now and the benefits more evident than ever before, but rapidly evolving market forces may limit choices going forward.
On Wednesday, June 17, 2020 Specialdocs and Medical Economics presented our panel of highly respected physicians who candidly discussed how the concierge practice model has enabled them to thrive professionally and personally in unprecedented times.
