Episode 14: Going old school with your doctor – Exploring Direct Primary Care with Beth Holmes of Hint Health
Seeing your primary care doctor shouldn’t feel like speed dating—right? Justin and Todd are joined by Beth Holmes, head of network development at Hint Health, to discuss how direct primary care (DPC) aims to revitalize old-school doctor-patient relationships and fill the gaps left by the fee-for-service model. Beth discusses DPC’s success with smaller employers and underinsured regions, how DPC reduces reliance on emergency care, and why family doctors may be less likely to leave the field in a DPC model.
Beth, Justin, and Todd examine some tricky questions facing this emerging care model: Who are the right patients for DPC’? How do we accurately track outcomes for a care model that doesn’t deliver claims data? And why should an employer think about offering DPC as a benefit to its employees when it already offers health insurance?
