The Concierge Medicine Research Collective (The Collective) works in partnership with Universities, physicians, associations, businesses, individuals and even Graduate medical Students to further advance the educational awareness and facts surrounding unanswered questions about:
- Concierge Medicine in the U.S., U.K., Canada and elsewhere;
- Direct Primary Care (DPC) Clinic Models;
- Ideal Medical Practice Models;
- Micro-Clinic Models
- Retail Healthcare Clinics;
- Cash-based Surgery Centers;
- and other free market healthcare delivery sectors.
“Subscription-based Medical Care is a relatively new, free market delivery innovation and its taken on many variations and lessons from the success of Concierge Medicine programs over the years. Much like the popularity of other service subscriptions in the marketplace like Prime, Netflix or Costco, Subscription-based medical care performs the functions of several different services. It provides a fair amount of selection, cost-saving deals, family discounts, and its ultimately up to you to decide each month, quarter or year if you want to keep the same doctor. It puts the patient in control and tells them how much it costs. Look for more subscription-based telehealth services from doctors, PAs and NPs in the months to come.” ~Michael Tetreault, Editor-in-Chief, Concierge Medicine Today
