“America’s Best Places To Work never include a doctors office,” says Michael Tetreault, Editor of the trade publication and conference host, Concierge Medicine Today. “Inside traditional medicine, patients expect to wait. They expect insurance to cover their visit. When it does not, they expect to fight. Consumers of healthcare today say they expect a disengaged staff and an unpleasant visit when at their doctor’s office. We can do better. Concierge Medicine Patients are invited rather than expected. It’s a healthcare environment where the Hippocratic Oath is married to the Golden Rule. We know from the massive swell of consumer interest in our world today that memberships drive engagement. Just look at the streaming television subscriptions and how engaged people are in what they watch. The same is happening in healthcare. When a Doctor tells us they will spend more time with us and research advanced treatment options on our behalf, there’s real value to that. This intuitive healthcare approach is designed to exceed people’s expectations every single day. This creates a massively loyal and engaged audience which, in turn, is producing some amazing patient outcome data as released and seen by some organizations in the space.”

A Wide Array of Topics Will Be Uncovered In Precision Medicine; Genomics; PGX; Physician Independence; Policy; Legal Updates; Telehealth and More!

During the two-day forum at the Forsyth Conference Center, a few miles north of Atlanta, GA, attendees will explore and discuss where the industry is headed and how today’s innovations are shaping future healthcare solutions. Specific focus areas include: Start-Up Insight and Stories about the Community of Start-Ups In Concierge Medicine Doing Good; Pharmacogenomics; New Research In Genomic & Precision Medicine Testing & Use/Utility In Your Practice Today; Training on a business model that is disrupting the healthcare industry; Legal & Regulatory News; Tele-Health in the Concierge Practice; Marketing and Patient Retention Strategies; A Panel Discussion on the Application of Medical Marijuana & Latest Research, Challenges & Opportunities; Functional and Integrative Concierge Medicine Programs; Personal Genomics and Anti-aging/Age Management Medicine; How Concierge Doctors Use Actual Medical Outcomes Data to Refer Their Patients to Qualified Surgeons and Hospitals across the U.S.; the practical application of Evidence Based Medicine; Concierge Medicine growth and startup strategies; Concierge Medicine Physician Retirement and Succession Planning; Marketing and Patient Retention; Entrepreneurial Growth Concepts in Healthcare used by Physicians; Precision Medicine’s utility inside primary care and family medicine; Genetic Predisposition Testing; Direct Primary Care; Reversing Insurance Denials using data; the political and legal future of the industry and how Physicians can empower their local communities and patients to make more informed decisions.
