Prepare yourself to be fascinated by Dr. Kyle Rickner, co-founder and chairman at Primary Health Partners, as he takes us on an inspiring journey of how direct primary care became his answer to physician burnout and subpar patient experiences. Step into the world of evolving healthcare models as we dissect the barriers that prevent more physicians from transitioning to this progressive model. Together, we untangle the web of the traditional fee-for-service system and how it has stagnated the growth of direct primary care. We also unpack the implications of misused health insurance and sky-rocketing premiums leading to a precarious cycle of health care costs.

In the latter half of our enlightening conversation, we journey across state lines to understand how direct primary care physicians unite in their mission to deliver patient care. Listen to Dr. Rickner narrate the challenges and triumphs of coordinating care for a substantial client base, all while pushing the scalability model forward. We also shine a spotlight on the significance of data collection in establishing the value of direct primary care and highlight the urgent need for educating people about its benefits. Join us and share our curiosity, as we discover how direct primary care is revolutionizing the healthcare industry.
