On Friday, March 6, 2020, The DPC Journal’s sister publication, Concierge Medicine Today, the industry trade publication for the Concierge Medicine and private medicine marketplace, released a Three-Part Educational SERIES and Playlist on Coronavius (COVID-19) FOR Doctors and their Patients to assist in the ongoing educational efforts in guiding our communities and healthcare professionals to appropriate resources.

This educational series is not medical advice. It shares three different perspectives from across the U.S. by three unique Doctors. These Physicians highlight how Patients, their Doctors office and their communities are connecting with one another more regularly now about health concerns and common virus-related questions. They are finding more Patients leaning in and listening more intently to their Physician.

This new COVID-19 educational series in Medicine spotlights the importance of the Physician-Patient relationship in our communities when healthcare professionals are overworked, under-staffed and so much misinformation is circulating and anxiety is percolating.

“If there is confusion about COVID-19 in the medical office, there will be confusion among patients,” says Michael Tetreault, Editor of The Direct Primary Care Journal and other healthcare publications. “This educational three-part playlist and Physician series brings to light precisely how important and critical the sacred Patient-Physician relationship is in our lives, families and communities. Each Physician we spoke with for example, is connecting with their local health department staff, area hospitals and meeting with other local medical professionals to develop a community-wide healthcare educational response so as to keep the right information in front of patients. These Physicians and others are taking rational, pro-active, calm and educational steps to educate their Patients and their communities [through educational library lectures, social media videos, etc.] about their risks, how to clean and stay safe as best we can and assist our communities in a difficult and already overwhelming flu season. In this time of anxiety, fear and worry … having a relationship with a Doctor [or any Physician who will listen and address your concerns to the full extent …] to discuss concerns or silly questions about family preparedness or individual anxiety is showing and telling us all how healthcare should be and could be delivered. As one of our favorite authors, Jeff Henderson in his new book Know What You’re For recently said in a community-wide business event a few weeks ago, ‘The more personable you are, the more remarkable you are.’ Well, for me, my community and family, who wouldn’t mind having more remarkable Doctors around. Doctors are lifesavers and now is a time in our history when we need them the most to live up to that expectation … and I’m proud to say, they are.” Editor, Concierge Medicine Today; Press Release; March 6, 2020

On February 11, 2020 the World Health Organization announced an official name for the disease that is causing the 2019 novel coronavirus outbreak, first identified in Wuhan China. The new name of this disease is coronavirus disease 2019, abbreviated as COVID-19. In COVID-19, ‘CO’ stands for ‘corona,’ ‘VI’ for ‘virus,’ and ‘D’ for disease. Formerly, this disease was referred to as “2019 novel coronavirus” or “2019-nCoV.”

“Lots of reports on Coronavirus,” says one Physician to Concierge Medicine Today (CMT). “None of the reports/news are answering critical questions regularly about: 1. Demographics for patients who die? End up in ICU? 2. Demographics for asymptomatic/mild cases? 3. Vaccine updates 4. Do any drugs work? 5. Do masks work?” California Physician; March 2020
