Hospitals eye concierge medicine to lure patients, boost revenue – Healthcare DIVE

The unfortunate future of healthcare in this country. The rich and middle class get to pay extra to see a doctor the same day and also get  “better care coordination”. Funny, I thought that was the promise of the billions of dollars spent in putting electronic records in place, which forced many smaller practitioners (who incidentally often offered the same services as concierge are claiming) into either closing their offices or joining hospitals such as Jefferson Healthcare.

Perks such as same-day appointments and longer doctors visits are part of the offerings.

Read it and weep.
