New models of care from Medicare Shared Savings Programs to Patient-Centered Medical Homes are built around the concept of each patient having a trusted relationship with a personal physician who partners with the patient and acts as the "hub" for both primary and specialty care. And yet that model is currently at risk from sources as diverse as narrower insurance networks, increasing urgent care centers, and "factory" telemedicine services. In this session, we'll explore the ways that a thoughtful approach to self-care services and telemedicine capabilities can actually enable primary care physicians to spend more quality time with patients, saving money and increasing satisfaction for patients and providers alike. The presentation builds on research and trend analysis.
