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.

Experimental surgery gains support as opioid deaths rise

May 20, 2019

SHANGHAI — Patient Number One is a thin man, with a scabby face and bouncy knees. His head, shaved in preparation for surgery, is wrapped in a clean, white cloth. Years of drug use cost him his wife, his money and his self-respect, before landing him in this drab yellow room at a Shanghai hospital, facing the surgeon who in 72 hours will drill two small holes in his skull and feed electrodes deep into his brain. The hope is that technology will extinguish his addiction, quite literally, with the flip of a switch. The treatment — deep brain stimulation...

Chinese researchers try brain implants to treat drug addicts

May 20, 2019

SHANGHAI — The sound of doctors boring through his skull to feed electrodes deep into his brain made Yan tremble. "The drill was like bzzzzzzz," he later recalled. "The moment of drilling is the most terrible." Yan is a methamphetamine addict. The hope is that technology will extinguish his addiction — quite literally, with the flip of a switch. The treatment — deep brain stimulation — has long been used for movement disorders like Parkinson's. Now, the first clinical trial of DBS for methamphetamine addiction is being conducted at Shanghai's Ruijin Hospital, along with trials for opioid addicts. Yan is...

Boeing 737 Max 8 woes crimp Asian airlines' growth plans

May 20, 2019

SINGAPORE — Asian airlines are cutting routes, revamping their schedules and leasing extra aircraft to fill gaps left by the grounding of Boeing 737 Max 8s after deadly crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia killed 346 people. So far, regional carriers have managed to avoid major disruptions, but analysts expect that idling the Max 8s, a fuel-efficient update of Boeing's popular 737, will crimp growth plans in the near future. As investigations into the crashes continue, Boeing anticipates a $1 billion increase in costs related to the 737 Max, including fixing software implicated in the disasters, adding pilot training and compensating...
