Good Morning Doctors,

We’re entering a Summer quite like none before us. As you continue to lead and guide your patients in this season, I want us to rally around an acronym that can have a powerful impact on all of us.

• "Do The Unexpected." (DTU)

There are already healthcare commercials on our television and radios saying things like "... if you're Doctor hasn't contacted you in this Pandemic, it's time to find a new one." People are weary. Employers are fearful and worried. We shouldn't have to be concerned about whether or not our Physician is too busy to connect with his/her Patients.

Those seemingly small acts of kindness you put off because it's not urgent, it's time to make them a priority. Patients are desiring connection, not content. Your intentionality and small doses or words of encouragement aren’t small things to your patients at all.

And yet, we can often be persuaded to put meaningful things on-hold because they aren't urgent. We're tempted to think a phone call will last too long, so don't make the call. But a handwritten note, or going out of your way will make make a big difference to someone who is battling anxiety or depression right now. This summer, let’s continue to push small doses of encouragement. Imagine if your peers in DPC sent just one encouraging card to a Patient twice a week. Imagine how that could change how people see and interact with their Doctor and bolster DPC in the future.

Let’s get personal this summer.

And while I’m not suggesting this isn’t who we already are, I am suggesting that now more than ever these small, personal acts of encouragement will have an even deeper impact.

Just imagine ... five DTUs a week (that's one per day) for four weeks in June. Collectively, that will add up to some incredible touch points and remarkable memories for your Patients.

And yes, this season will someday be over.

Our belief is that we will get through it stronger and better.

Doing The Unexpected and bringing hope to Patients is one of the easiest and most tangible ways you can make this happen.

This June, let’s do the unexpected!

Grateful for each of you!

~Michael Tetreault, Editor-in-Chief, The DPC Journal

Walmart Health expands as physician practices face cash crunch: Walmart is moving deeper into the primary care market while physician practices across the country are struggling to stay afloat.

If you don't think Walmart Health and the retail clinics of the world will compete with Direct Primary Care (DPC) models ... they will. The patient demographics, locales and costs are similar. Sure, there's drastic differences ... but it's important DPC stands out in your local community as a positive alternative and has a deeper relationship between Physician and Patient. Show your community your value .... but don't villainize. Patients remember negative impressions ... they won't go where they don't feel welcome. https://www.beckershospitalreview.com/finance/walmart-health-expands-as-physician-practices-face-cash-crunch.html

BRI student scholarship recipient wrote a testimonial on the Direct Primary Care (DPC) Summit 2019, titled, “Finding Medicine Again.” http://bit.ly/30tCIpR - Benjamin Rush Institute
Few things in the healthcare market can be as potentially disruptive as retail clinics, and for that reason so much attention is focused on them. A recent survey showed that 91 percent of patients who used a retail clinic reported that they were “satisfied” or “very satisfied” with their visit. With retail clinics being called the healthcare “game-changer”, can DPC compete? Or can retail clinics and DPC live together in harmony? Read more -
