What is Concierge Medicine or Direct Primary Care?*
Access, affordability, individualized attention – these are just some of the myriad of benefits. Concierge medicine in its simplest form is relationship-based care that creates a direct connection between patients and their health care providers, namely their physician and health coaches. At ConnectedHealth, it also means access to a wide range of additional health care resources including Andrew DeMarco, MD, or “Dr. Andy.”
It's All About YOU.
ConnectedHealth’s concierge care model incorporates the type of services and benefits that today’s health care consumers want, and are compatible with their lifestyle and expectations. Here are a few of the key points that differentiate us from the traditional care.
Concierge Medicine is…
- Patient-defined - You can keep your current primary care physician and have Dr. Andy provide more of a personalized level of support as a supplementary resource, or you can have him serve as your PCP. You decide what works best for you.
- Patient-focused - This idea is at the very core of everything we do at ConnectedHealth. From unlimited access to your physician, to fast-track appointment setting and comprehensive care solutions, our services are all about YOU.
- A model that values quality over quantity - Patient volume does matter in today’s bottom line driven health care industry. Large providers need more patients to remain profitable. But from a patient perspective, more isn’t necessarily better when it comes to efficiency and quality of services.
- A personal relationship - What could be more personal than an individual’s health care? What is more important than trust when it comes to a physician? At ConnectedHealth, we embrace these values in every aspect of our relationship with you.
- Preventative - The best way to be well is to not get sick in the first place. Although this isn’t always possible, concierge care emphasizes a proactive approach to wellness which improves outcomes for our patient on a continuous, long-term basis.
- 24/7 Access to Your PCP – By phone, text or email. Access to Dr. Andy is always at your fingertips.
- Same or Next Day Appointments – When you just can’t wait to see the doctor, we won’t make you.
- Comprehensive Lab Reviews – Dr. Andy understands what your test results mean, and he will make sure you do, too. By taking the time to walk you through your reports, you become more knowledgeable and empowered regarding your own healthcare.
