Join NYT bestselling author, Johns Hopkins surgeon and professor, Dr. Makary as he offers highlights from his recent book "The Price We Pay." This session--Rebuilding the Public Trust in Healthcare" is designed to shed light on the egregious behaviors taking place in the US health care system that has been slowly eroding the public trust in the medical profession. Marty reaffirms the notion the answers aren't coming from D.C. but rather from forward-looking primary care leaders and innovative delivery models that shift away from the current underperforming, fee-for-service model and, instead, focus on value and relationships to address the social, economic, and lifestyle determinants of health.

On average, a full-time primary care physician in the U.S. will lose more than $65,000 in revenue in 2020. Overall, the U.S. primary care sector will lose nearly $15 billion. Losses stem from drastic reductions in office visits and fees for services during COVID-19 shutdowns from March to May. Losses threaten practice viability, reducing further an already insufficient number of primary care providers in the United States. Direct primary care practices are ready to serve as health care heroes. Hear from Tom Blue, functional medicine expert as he shares important data from a recent study that dispels these statistics for direct primary care leaders and how this innovative model can lead the way forward.

Working with employers can exponentially grow a DPC practice, especially when physicians are able to contract with larger self-insured employer groups. However, working with employer groups can be a complex endeavor; it can require long sales cycles, insurance broker negotiations, sophisticated reporting tools, understanding the plan design & how other stakeholders fit into the equation (and much more). Any practice looking to break into the employer market should have a strategy and be sure they understand exactly what tools they need to master this space. Joel Bessmer, MD, CEO of Strada Healthcare; Katrine Nicol, JD of Nicol Health Law, and Sean Schantzen, Co-founder & CEO of Health Rosetta offer the key points for employer contracting followed by working roundtables as part of the DPC Accelerator Course.
