(LISTEN, Physician SPOTLIGHT) “I can do more in one house call than I could ever do sitting in a box at a clinic, being told I have to see patients every 10 minutes.” ~Dr. E.B.
The healthcare system is moving away from a fee-for-service model to a model that pays for outcomes and value delivered. Direct Primary Care (DPC) practices, that charge patients a flat monthly fee for delivering primary care, are becoming popular. Most of these are two- to three-physician practices, with minimal overheads, that cater to 200 to 300 patients.
DPC Analytics helps these practices use analytics to improve the quality of care. DPC practices can neither afford large-market solutions nor derive any meaningful value from them. DPC Analytics scales actionable data and performance improvement to the scope, dimension and budget of a DPC. With an integrated view of patient health data and key performance indicators, DPC practices can keep a tab on how they are performing and see which areas need their attention.
One major benefit of DPC practices is the perfect alignment of incentives. It is in the interest of physicians to keep their patients healthy. A complete understanding of their patients’ medical history combined with a strong analytics capability enables them to deliver quality care and an improved patient experience. DPC Analytics also helps these practices use data to share compelling stories on how they are improving patient health and differentiate themselves from other practices.
