The cost of healthcare is rising, and no matter what health insurance system you may be using, consumers of healthcare services are cheated out of their time, their money and above all their right to competent, complete healthcare. Concierge healthcare is a great idea; specialized concierge care is an even better idea. There are many advantages to having specialized concierge care.
What is Concierge Care?
Concierge care is a healthcare delivery system created by a physician or group of physicians who work together to deliver individualized care to their patients in exchange for a membership fee. Consumers who choose to join concierge care practices enjoy physicians who are more responsive to the needs of each patient in terms of communication and unhurried, quality time spent with each patient to discover, plan and execute the agreed-upon therapeutic regimen. The patient benefits all the way around in terms of a robust and complete treatment plan, and physicians benefit in terms of a smaller patient population, time to practice the comprehensive medicine they trained so long and hard to perform and the satisfaction of a job well done. Preventative medicine is especially cultivated within the concierge spectrum of practice.
Specialized concierge care is the cherry on top of concierge healthcare delivery. Specialists who join together are able to focus expertise, time and attention on services such as spine treatments, pain management, podiatry, joint replacement and sports medicine. Imagine being able to go to one location to have your unique constellation of healthcare issues treated competently and on an individualized basis.
The Various Benefits
Consumers who choose to use concierge care benefit in ways they will never experience with traditional healthcare delivery systems, such as:
- Same-day/next-day/after-hours/house-call appointments
- Enhanced, quality-time appointments
- Increased frequency of appointments
- Improved and increased physician availability
- Improved, timely physician communication
- Single system management of all patient care
- Robust patient exam of all pertinent body systems
- Detailed application of patient data
- Focus on preventive care
- Improved cost-effectiveness
The advantages of specialized concierge care depend on the focused area of practice. Physicians that specialize in spinal medicine can range from chiropractic and other non-invasive spinal treatments, or a surgeon for when invasive procedures are indicated. Podiatrists look after some of the most used parts of the body — the feet, ankles and heels. If you are suffering from joint issues or need sports medicine, orthopedic doctors and surgeons are available in specialized concierge care to attend to all matters involving bones and their supporting structures.
