DPC News fully supports what the DPC Alliance is doing. We are proud to share their announcements and here is the first of many to come:
Hello from a secret bunker in the lost mountains of Blue Ridge. I am excited to share with everyone the first report of monthly installments of Direct Primary Care Alliance monthly board meetings. The meeting formal minutes are posted to the public once approved by the board. However, we want to share the Alliance news with the DPC community as soon as we can. To that end, let’s go.
The Alliance board members are working on a collaboration with Dr. Maryal Concepcion of My DPC Story fame that would offer DPC physician “meet up” chat rooms. These would function similar to Clubhouse in a sense and would be a place for physicians new to DPC to connect with experienced DPC docs to chat for a brief time. Also, this could be used by experienced DPC docs to meet up for tips and support as they continue to grow. This would be a unique platform specific to DPC physicians. All involved hope is this will be a great resource for DPC Alliance members to connect in regular chat room like format. More to come.

Early reports are showing hundreds of dollars in savings on medical supplies and equipment. There are also discounts for LabCorp labs and other companies.

Finally, the Alliance team is working on a collaboration with a national well known and establish lender that works specifically with medical clinics and startups. This financial group is very excited about the future of DPC and are taking steps to design a unique loan program to help physicians start up their own DPC clinics. Please keep it here to learn more in the future.
