Why Advanced Primary Care is Essential for Employee Well-Being


Imagine offering your employees a benefit that allows them to be healthier, happier, and more productive. This is possible through a simple subscription.

For over 40 years, research has shown that superior primary care leads to better health outcomes, increased happiness, and significant savings. Now, companies are enhancing their employee health benefits with subscription-based primary care.

Great primary care is the cornerstone of effective healthcare delivery. With superior primary care, physicians can build relationships with their patients, address underlying issues rather than just treating symptoms, and take the time needed to address concerns before they escalate into emergencies. Unfortunately, today’s healthcare system often provides poor primary care, with doctors seeing upwards of 2,000+ patients and having only 5-10 minutes per appointment. This limited time forces physicians to refer or prescribe instead of addressing the root causes, resulting in higher costs and lower patient satisfaction.

By changing the payment model, we can transform the care provided. With subscription-based primary care, your employees can experience the difference through:

Enhanced Employee Wellness:

Subscription-based primary care offers employees personalized, on-demand access to healthcare, reducing the barriers to seeking timely medical attention. With comprehensive health screenings, chronic disease management, and wellness coaching, employees can achieve and maintain optimal health, leading to fewer sick days and higher overall productivity.

A study published in the Journal of Family Practice found that patients with access to high-quality primary care had lower rates of hospitalization and emergency room visits. Another study in Health Affairs showed that strong primary care systems are associated with better preventive care, leading to early detection and management of chronic diseases.

Increased Employee Satisfaction

Happy employees are productive employees. Subscription-based primary care provides a VIP experience, ensuring that employees feel valued and cared for. In addition to same/next day in-person visits, the convenience of virtual consultations and personalized health plans fosters a sense of security and trust.

A survey conducted by the American Academy of Family Physicians indicated that patients in subscription-based practices felt more valued and had stronger relationships with their doctors compared to those in traditional practices. This deeper connection contributes to better mental health and overall happiness.

Cost Savings for Companies

One of the most significant advantages of subscription-based primary care is cost predictability and savings. By investing in proactive health management, companies can reduce the frequency of expensive emergency room visits and hospitalizations. Subscription plans often come with fixed monthly fees, making it easier for businesses to budget healthcare expenses while providing high-quality care.

A study by the Society of Actuaries found that DPC patients had lower overall healthcare costs due to fewer hospital admissions, reduced need for specialist care, and better-managed chronic conditions. Additionally, a Milbank Quarterly study highlighted that effective primary care could lower healthcare costs by reducing unnecessary tests and procedures

Boosting Productivity

Healthy employees are more focused and efficient. With easy access to primary care, employees can address health concerns promptly, minimizing downtime and preventing minor issues from becoming major problems. This proactive approach to health management translates to a more engaged and productive workforce.

What is Direct Primary Care?

Direct Primary Care is a healthcare model where patients pay for their primary care directly through a monthly or annual fee. This model allows for more personalized care, longer doctor visits, and greater accessibility. Our membership includes 24/7 access to a provider.
