Learn More About DPC

Direct Personal Care (DPC) is an innovative membership-based model in which patients pay simple, flat monthly fees directly to their physician. This replaces the traditional system of third-party insurance coverage for personal care services and grants them a package of preventative treatments that you would receive during wellness exams, regardless of whether it’s through work or not! The desire to provide patients with quality care and the need for financial remuneration are two entirely separate entities. In personal medical practice, DPC eliminates “fee-for-service” incentives by encouraging relationships between doctors and their clients instead of just focusing on patient’s medical needs alone; this allows practitioners more time as well as access to some complex elements within the American healthcare system that can often be difficult without guidance from an experienced professional such as themselves. The Open Water Medical model is designed to put patients back in control of their healthcare. We offer personal care physicians with experience and trust built over many years by our team’s dedication; they will work closely alongside you at all stages – from diagnosis through treatment recommendations tailored just for YOU!
It is no secret that the medical industry relies heavily on personal relationships. This new model, which prioritizes family practitioners’ intuition and power of relationship with patients over all else (even modern medicine’s best technologies) can help improve health outcomes while also lowering overall costs for care delivery in America! The DPC contract fee structure not only empowers doctors to spend more time with their patients, but it also gives them freedom. Rather than being restricted by insurance restrictions that require them to receive reimbursement for every visit or phone call they make while treating a certain patient-this allows the physician’s full attention on what really matters: taking care of your health! The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) is an organization that promotes the use and development of personal care doctors like yourself. They provide resources for transforming into this model, including CME credits to help you learn more about it! online medical training programs are also available through their website if needed – just search “Direct Personal Care.”
North Carolina is known for its beautiful beaches, warm water, and clear skies. However it’s also home to some of the most comprehensive healthcare in America at Open Water Medical! We provide individualized care that you can’t find anywhere else on this side or beyond. If your doctor doesn’t have enough time for everything patients need, then look no further because we’re here ready with an appointment waiting just around every corner eager not only to take good care but heal those who come through our doors year after year as well-wishers from all over trying new things together having fun exploring what makes living worth doing even better than before.
