CLERMONT, Fla., May 9, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Primary Partners, an integrated group of high-performing physicians
Direct primary care has become increasingly popular with physicians nationwide, who believe it helps provide personal, convenient care with reduced administrative burden. Patients pay a membership fee every month, which allows them basic coverage without additional fees for a wide range of healthcare services. Direct primary care helps patients enjoy a stronger physician-patient relationship and empowers them to achieve better health.
"Many patients look to direct primary care for financial reasons," said Dr. Cara Jakob, chief transformation officer for Primary Partners. "They appreciate knowing what their physician costs are going to be each month. However, even more than cost, they appreciate the increased level of access and a closer physician-patient relationship."
The direct primary care model complements Primary Partners' approach to intensive, disciplined patient care. By finding ways to ensure that care is accessible and affordable, Primary Partners can keep patients healthier – and more satisfied – for the long-term.
"This model really represents a return to traditional values in patient care," said Dr. Memory Crowley, chief medical officer for Primary Partners. "Our patients enjoy the more robust level of care, and we see the benefit from a population health perspective. Quite simply, this model empowers our providers and our patients to achieve better overall health."
Primary Partners has grown significantly in the last few quarters. The group recently announced that it would enter risk-based agreements with select Medicare Advantage plans. Under these arrangements, Primary Partners is responsible for the complete continuum of healthcare required for certain Medicare Advantage patients who choose a Primary Partners physician as their PCP. In addition, Primary Partners is actively growing its physician network to include specialists in disciplines outside of primary care.
