New Healthcare Is Restorative

New Healthcare is restoring two sacred trusts that the Bigs have almost destroyed.

  • The doc/patient exam
  • The employer/ employee pact

The Golden Triangle of doctor, patient /employee and employer is our pivot point to best holistic answers repairing sacred trusts.

New wave benefits restore the pact that working for a company – “ good insurance “ saves from financial and health ruin. Nest vs the Wild.
We employers find healthcare buried treasure

  • Reduced spends of 20-25% easy 40-60% tougher.
  • Friction is eliminated
    1. zero deductibles/ copays
    2. texting or calling or seeing a PCP 24/7.

    So once I found 18 more days per employee of reduced absenteeism I broke even

  • Retention savings
    • I had no downtime
    • training
    • recruiting
  • Presenteeism is down. Med/doc access is easy now

…trust is established, a conversation occurs as if two friends are talking since the initial wall between doc and patient is broken down, and more intimate things are shared—in that intimacy that the sacred trust manifests, and unfiltered conversation happens, even if just for a little while.

Paying for Direct Primary Care

My 2-year experience as an employer paying for #DirectPrimaryCare

  • #Turnover was zero 2019. Three days of less turnover per employee paid for my annual cost. I’m ahead.
  • In January we needed four MAs. Takes 60-80 candidates to find four A players. We stopped all interviews at #5 because now we attract an excellent pool of advertising-free healthcare.
  • #Absenteeism is half because 6-hour time suck Medicaid exams to get a 7-minute visit and script is replaced by a call or text at their desk.
  • #Presenteeism I don’t measure, but intuitively way down since my team, with 24/7 bilingual #PCP access is healthier.

I live in a future where everyone wins: employer, employee, and doctors. Cannot imagine going back to #highdeductibles, copays, clipboards, long waits #factorymedicine and shocking lab bills.

I feel in full integrity with promised safety.

This emphasis on the doctor-patient relationship has contributed to the growth of an innovation commonly referred to as Direct Primary Care (DPC).

For the patients, the benefits are clear. They now make their own health care decisions, with the advice of their providers and full knowledge of what the costs will be.
