Continuing the Conversation
With your host Jeff Kanter
and special co-host Dr. Marilyn Singleton
Diana Girnita, MD, PhD
On 10/13/21 we had with us Diana Girnita, MD, PhD Founder of Rheumatologist On Call, and Co-Founder of Direct Specialty Care Alliance
Every Wednesday your Freedom Hub (founded by Jeff Kanter and Charles Frohman) hosts two Zoom calls. One is at 4pm, the other at 7pm. The 4pm call is eclectic (often regarding our liberties…or disappearing liberties) and the 7pm usually is centered around practitioners who use a cash-based practice and what they do. These are recorded and archived.
The Emergence of Direct Specialty Care
A recent poll found 90% of employment opportunities for specialists lie in hospitals, yet only 20% of physicians wanted to work there. If possible doctors prefer to see patients in private clinics. Why the disconnect?
Is hospital employment really that undesirable? Physicians can work easier hours in hospitals, while escaping some liability and business overhead. But hospitals leave many doctors dissatisfied with limits on their discretion to practice medicine - a dynamic which affects quality of care. Employers increasingly skip hospitals in their benefits if they can find private practices with which to directly contract, and patients are avoiding hospitals for a variety of reasons if they can find better care in independent centers. And what about the doctors?
Dr. Girnita believes specialists are ready to upgrade the medical market to one built on the above direct contracts with employers and families. At the Direct Specialty Care Alliance, she is finding great demand for her organization's guidance in educating physicians how to restore their relationship with patients - which improves the market too around transparent pricing. Join our discussion this week how to make healthcare more accessible and affordable via direct specialty care.
