    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.
    All are welcome.  A chat room affords listeners an opportunity for interaction in real time during the show, which is archived on BTR and iTunes.
