SEPTEMBER 23, 2013 – The Direct Primary Care Journal (DPCJ) (www.DirectPrimaryCare.com), the trade publication for the cash-pay healthcare delivery industry, announced today that it will be offering professional education webinars, courses and continuing medical education (CME) activities to help doctors develop and maintain professional knowledge, skills and quality performance standards.
Fundamentals for upcoming classes and webinars to be launched in early 2014 will include:
- Development of best practices for delivery that improve outcomes and health, increase productivity, and saves money;
- Adoption of payment policies that reflect the diversity of emerging physician services;
- Technological and clinical integration into a direct-pay or cash-only practice;
- Identification of options that allow physicians to choose models that fit their mode of practice;
- Start-Up and finance assistance for physicians seeking a career in private-pay healthcare;
- and more.
“By identifying current and emerging payment and delivery models that work best for physicians across a variety of practice settings,” says Catherine Sykes, Publisher and Managing Director of The Direct Primary Care Journal, “we will play a vital role in helping physicians navigate the evolving health care environment successfully.”
As the nation’s independent observer and reporter of unique health care delivery systems, The Direct Primary Care Journal is dedicated to helping physicians navigate the environment successfully by providing physicians with helpful business and educational resources that have resulted in positive outcomes for patients and greater professional satisfaction for physicians.
Spokespersons for the development of these professional education activities at DPCJ noted that a series of courses, classes and webinars will be announced with subsequent CMEs in 2014. These Continuing Medical Education (CME) offerings will help this growing industry develop and maintain knowledge, skills and performance standards necessary for a long, successful career in this modern healthcare delivery marketplace.
“When doctors are successful, we will be a national force showcasing delivery and payment models that restore professional satisfaction and practice sustainability for physicians,” says Sykes. “Our mission is to play an active role in supporting physicians through related practice changes, providing relevant solutions across specialties, practice settings and geographies. Ultimately, we will strive to create a more professional and stable business environment that better serves physicians and the patients under their care. When it comes to continuing medical education (CME) activities, The Direct Primary Care Journal has the right mind-set, physicians, relationships, instructors, educational resources and background to help today’s busy physicians and staff meet their business, educational and professional needs.”
