Thanks again to Rob Lamberts, MD for being my guest on Family Medicine Rocks Episode 277. He is leaving his current traditional medical practice model for something called "Direct Care" medicine which is a subscription model in which patients pay a monthly fee. Dr. Rob states that his patients will have better access to him in this model, which includes electronic communication like e-mail.
In the midst of our conversation, he describes how he came to this decision. He's frustrated (like many of us primary care physicians) with the current health care system, and he felt that he could not transform his practice from within. So, he decided to start his new practice from scratch.
At the end of the interview, we reminisced about when we first started blogging about 5 years ago. My, how times have changed in the healthcare social media space. In the video above, Dr. Rob gave some reflective comments to close the show.
