The Proliferation of Concierge Medicine Business Models in Value Based Medicine
Session Description: In a healthcare landscape that is increasingly shifting to value-based care, some patients are finding the amount of time their primary care physicians have for them dwindling and look for other methods of healthcare delivery to increase communication with their doctors.

Doctors will have fewer patients, but spend more time addressing medical concerns and preventing disease among their set of patients.
The session will address how concierge medicine can solve some of the biggest problems around traditional healthcare payment options. Does this model reduce costs in the short- and long-term? What apps are being developed in tandem?
