Boutique Medicine is Beneficial For Both Patients and Physicians

Boutique medicine is the solution for a growing number of primary care physicians to be able to practice the highest quality medical care. This trend is only likely to intensify going forwards.

Winnetka, United States - April 25, 2019 /PressCable/ —

With concierge medicine, also called retainer-based, or boutique medicine, physicians typically charge a monthly or annual fee. Boutique physicians limit the number of patients they see and offer enhanced access, longer appointments, and highly personalized patient care. This model is usually used to deliver high-quality healthcare, which can sometimes lower overall health costs because patients receive more attentive and preventative care.

The boutique medical services available will vary by practice. Some offices offer fewer services, while others increase them. For example, Dedication Health has additional diagnostic testing available in-office, as well as specialist care and 24/7 access to a physician. Perks, such as valet parking and comfortable patient suites are also available. While many do not accept insurance, there are a few that do, including Dedication Health. Dedication Health is a boutique medical practice in Chicago’s North Shore.

As more doctors move into the model, the most growth is being seen in bigger cities first, including Chicago. That means rural areas may not have any boutique medicine practices and those that do may have long waiting lists.

The term “boutique doctor” can refer to any physician who runs a practice that charges a retainer or membership fee. Although some practices are all-inclusive and do not bill insurance, referred to as direct primary care (DPC), the term is most often used in conjunction with concierge medicine, in which more focus is placed on delivering top-notch patient care and developing strong physician/ patient relationships.

By accepting only a limited number of patients, the concierge physicians at Dedication Health offer unrestricted, personalized one-on-one attention, as well as enhanced member services and benefits to all of their patients.

Jul 21, 2019

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Indonesia's president and his defeated election rival met Saturday for the first time since the divisive April poll and rode together on a recently opened subway in the capital, signaling a calming of political tensions in the world's third-largest democracy. In a choreographed spectacle, President Joko Widodo and former special forces general Prabowo Subianto met and embraced at a gleaming new subway station in Jakarta and sat together chatting on a short train trip. Subianto had refused to accept the election result and threatened a "people power" uprising. He alleged massive and systematic fraud, but his legal...

Hong Kong court throws out ex-leader's misconduct conviction

Jul 21, 2019

HONG KONG — A Hong Kong court on Wednesday threw out former Chief Executive Donald Tsang's conviction for misconduct relating to a property deal while in office. Tsang was released in January after serving a 12-month sentence for failing to disclose plans to rent a luxury apartment from a businessman granted a government broadcasting license. A panel of five judges on the Court of Final Appeal ruled that the judge at Tsang's trial had not given jurors sufficient directions on assessing whether he had deliberately concealed information before finding him guilty in 2017. The judges also ordered that no retrial...

When disaster hits, Indonesia's Islamists are first to help

Jul 21, 2019

PALU, Indonesia — The flags hanging outside Anwar Ragaua's house have drawn warnings from police, but the wiry 50-year-old vows he's not taking them down. After all, the police weren't there to help when he was the sole fisherman in his village to survive the tsunami that inundated the Indonesian city of Palu at dusk on Sept. 28. Nor was the government. Nor were the aid organizations that swept into the stricken region in remote central Sulawesi. Instead, the first people to offer him hope — and a new boat — were deployed by a hardline Islamic group notorious for...

China issues travel alerts, slams US 'interference'

Jul 21, 2019

BEIJING — China issued a pair of travel warnings for the U.S. on Tuesday and slammed what it called "interference" in its internal affairs. Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang accused the U.S. of acting in bad faith in trade negotiations and said any attempts to interfere or undermine China's stability would be "doomed to fail." The volleys of criticism between the two largest economies leave them further than ever from resolving their standoff over U.S. complaints that Beijing resorts to unfair trade practices and unscrupulous methods to obtain advanced technologies. The Chinese comments followed a statement from the U.S. Trade...
