Interested in learning more about Direct Access Primary Care? Check out this article from Forbes. Qliance even gets a special mention!

"In line with DPC’s mission of spending more time with patients and less time on administrative demands imposed by third-party payers, Qliance patients are less likely to need costly “downstream” care; resulting in 65 percent fewer ER visits, 66 percent fewer specialist visits, and 82 percent fewer surgeries than those with traditional insurance."

forbes.com Direct primary care (DPC) will end up playing a more prominent role on the national stage of conservative health reform. The Wall Street Journal considers this patient-centered delivery model the “fourth leg” to any plan that would replace Obamacare.
