PBS News Hour (I viewed via PBS New Hampshire) presented a different take on obtaining quality health care that involves spending more on medical care. The News Hour discussion for this evening (7/9/12) included concierge medicine and as an example, MDVIP Inc. Tonight’s full program may be available via online video tomorrow at http://www.pbs.org/newshour/video/
The basic idea is for patients to spend more money for more physician attention. The participating physician in turn takes on fewer patients. Google search provides more information. For example, one can search on concierge medicine boston. A brief description of MDVIP can be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MDVIP.
