DPC Summit Agenda

Learn About a New Business Model for a New Era

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

After the 2017 DPC Summit, participants will be able to:

  1. Recognize the relationships between the DPC model and other reimbursement models.
  2. Consider how the DPC model addresses patient population needs, while specifically addressing issues related to patient panel size and accessibility of clinical services.
  3. Identify opportunities, resources, and strategies to become more directly involved with DPC-related advocacy efforts at both the state and federal levels.
  4. Evaluate whether or not DPC is an effective model for ones current practice and patient communities; including the practicality of converting an existing FFC practice into a DPC, versus starting a new DPC practice from scratch.
  5. Determine the feasibility of continuing with Medicare participation, compared to opting out of Medicare, respective to their DPC practice.
  6. Evaluate the prospective impact of the DPC model in fostering a renewed interest in primary care among future physician and physicians-in-training.
