Direct Primary Care Webinar
June 8 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Please join us for the first of a two-part webinar series on Direct Primary Care featuring Dr. Kayur Patel, Chief Medical Officer at Proactive MD, and Dr. David Usher, M.D. at ReforMedicine. HRCI Credits have been approved and other CE Credits have been applied for.
Dr. Patel will discuss how and why health care doesn’t have the systems in place for integrated health, and what we can do to provide real, quality care to patients by utilizing incentives. He’ll also provide an overview on Direct Primary Care – what it is and how it works.
In addition to talking about how he’s approached health care during the pandemic, Dr. Usher will discuss his background as a Family Practice Physician and chair of the Family Medicine Department in a large system and how that experience influenced him in 2011 to found a Direct Primary Care Practice focused on affordable high-value health primary care.
In part two of this series (June 25th, 11:00am) you’ll hear from employers on why and how they got involved in Direct Primary Care – including their internal processes and success stories related to opening an on-site or shared-site clinic.
