DPC Summit Agenda

Learn About a New Business Model for a New Era

Direct Primary Care (DPC) transforms primary care from the inside out.

2017 DPC Summit participants learned how to:

  1. Evaluate whether or not direct primary care (DPC) is an effective model for your career path, and/or your current practice and patient communities; including the practicality of converting an existing fee-for-service (FFS) practice into a DPC, versus starting a new DPC practice from scratch.
  2. Apply various methods and processes that DPC practices have established to engage employers in their community.
  3. Identify opportunities, resources, and strategies to become more directly involved with DPC-related advocacy efforts at both the state and federal levels.
  4. Employ essential business management skills required of a successful DPC practice owner.
  5. Recognize the prospective impact of the DPC model in fostering a renewed interest in primary care among future physician and physicians-in-training.
