Free Journal Will Focus on Emerging Direct-Care Health Industry
JUNE 25, 2013 – The growing direct primary care [direct care] marketplace now has access to a media resource, public relations team and news reporting platform in the form of a free, direct care trade publication. The Direct Primary Care Journal (DCJ) is an independent online news reporting publication and trade journal utilizing experienced journalists and dedicated writers who will be covering all facets of the direct primary care [direct care] industry.
The DCJ’s web site will feature: video clips from successful direct care physicians discussing their direct relationship with patients; weekly news reports; emerging trends, educational tools; startup stories; how-to’s; marketplace resources; practical business model development approaches; new technologies and more. In addition, links to articles shaping the nation’s view of this movement, regular legislative updates, health reform and policy opinions from industry leaders as well as connections to dozens of the most popular direct blogs discussing direct care and its potential to rescue primary care will also be included.
“It is our goal to add fuel to the commentary already being discussed, feed the appetite of the physician community-at-large and educate consumers of all ages,” said DCJ Editor, Michael Tetreault. “Direct care provides an affordable, cost effective and straightforward relationship with a doctor. It is also a life-line to those primary care physicians across America considering alternative business structures for their practices. It’s attractive to almost any physician that wants their future in medicine to be rewarding and fulfilling in the years ahead.”
The DCJ works directly and indirectly with physicians, businesses and leaders, journalists and the media in the healthcare marketplace to help promote the distribution of news and information, policy initiatives and to reach out to physicians throughout the country.
“Over the years, we found there was no central repository of [direct care] news, information or daily educational resource for patients that wasn’t focused on promoting one particular physicians practice,” adds Tetreault. “The DCJ was created to fill an information void we found when they began reporting, discussing and talking about this space years ago. Our knowledge of the industry, physician relationships, connection with numerous reporters and media outlets and vast reach across the U.S. and abroad make this a powerful trade publication for the marketplace.”
The publication, based in Atlanta, GA, also publishes Concierge Medicine Today and Concierge Medicine Canada, which are similar trade journals that cover the concierge medicine marketplace and report news and information to over 95 countries.
