I have talked about Direct Primary Care on this blog and on the podcast in the past. For those who are not familiar, Direct Primary Care are services offered directly to the patient, often without insurance administration. The patient pays fixed monthly fees and also sometimes visit fees as well. The challenge in describing this concept is that there is no official definition of Direct Primary Care. Hopefully, this meeting will take steps toward that.
As far as I know, there has never been a national meeting about Direct Primary Care - that is until now. This meeting is organized by our friends at the Family Medicine Education Consortium and starts today in St Louis.
The full schedule is here and you can follow on twitter using the hashtag #DPCSummit. I'll only be able to catch part of the summit, but I hope to learn more about Direct Primary Care and its impact on American Healthcare.
