    Direct Primary Care National Summit 2013- Reflections

    in Health

    A day by day and tweet review of the Direct Primary Care Naitonal Summit in St. Louis October 11-12.  A Patrick Jonas, MD, who served on the planning committee, spoke at and learned from Summit,  is host and a practicing Family Physician in Ohio.
     This meeting offered a lot for DPC physicians, practices, products and other interested parties. I review each item on the schedule and each sponsor and vendor.  Almost everyone who attended was there at the closing bell.  The enthusiasm was impressive.
    I comment that this is the only aspect of medicine that is on the offensive.  The movement - or Solution, as described by Gabe Fine of Health Access Rhode Island- has a chance to seize, retain and exploit the initiative.
    #DPCSummit was the hashtag for Twitter.  I reviewed most of the tweets on the show.  Follow along while you listen.

    What is Primary Medical Care for the Homebound Elderly?

    in Business

    On October 22, at Noon, my guest will be Dr. Jomarie Zeleznik.  Dr. Zeleznik is Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. From 1995 until 2004 she trained geriatric fellows, internal medicine and family medicine residents, and medical students at Montefiore Medical Center. She is published in the geriatric and palliative care literature on subjects including pressure ulcers, communication between doctors and health care proxies and aging physiology. Dr. Zeleznik established Comprehensive Geriatric Care in 2004 as an office-based solo medical practice with home visits to for those patients who because they became homebound could no longer travel for primary medical care in the office. Informed by the experience of being one of the many hands-on caregivers for her own home-bound mother who died at home of complications of Parkinson's disease and the challenges of obtaining care in the home, Dr. Zeleznik remade Comprehensive Geriatric Care as direct primary care practice which provides accessible and individualized primary and palliative care to those elderly who cannot leave their homes.  Dr. Zeleznik is a co-founder of The CareGivers’ Project, a not for profit which is an on and off-line organization where caregivers for elderly can express and reflect about the complexities of being a caregiver through written and visual material and get-togethers.
