Implementation Models
Direct Care takes many forms as it is applied across today's healthcare entities.
Group Practices
Once the backbone of the U.S. healthcare system, today’s independent provider groups are realizing the value of simplifying their operations and getting back to the basics of medicine. A strong foundation of monthly recurring revenue gives them the freedom to innovate with new technologies and treatment plans that improve outcomes and patient satisfaction.
Direct Primary Care
Independent clinics are sprouting across the country to offer tailored services in their local markets. Both patients and providers benefit from this highly personalized model of medicine. It gives them the autonomy they need to provide good longitudinal care and efficiently address the root cause of modern health issues.
Medical Specialists
Specialist providers see the value of breaking down cost barriers between themselves and their patients. Instead of disincentivizing plan adherence with fee-for-service visit tolls, patients on a monthly retainer are motivated to engage with their care team as often as needed to achieve lasting change.
Provider Networks
As an alternative to vertical integration, several provider organizations are forming narrow networks with select partners to provide bundled service offerings under a flat, capitated payment. These networks allow for the coordination of laboratory, imaging, specialist and surgical offerings needed to service larger self-funded employer accounts while each organization maintains the autonomy that empowers their excellence.
Health Systems
Large health systems have all of the components needed to provide effective, integrated care. Several are beginning to explore different ways of packaging and pricing these services as Direct Care offerings. Providers in these systems experience the same benefits of incentive alignment inherent in the Direct Care model, with the ability to rapidly scale their operations in response to consumer and employer demand.
