Welcome to Naples Premier Concierge - The Way Medicine Used To Be

What Set's Us Apart

Naples Premier Concierge started out as a reaction to the changing health care environment both on a national as well as a local level.  Medicare has created incentives for doctors to see more and more patients in a shorter interval. This has led to the generally accepted 10 minute appointments that most doctors use to see patients. This has led to frustration on both the part of the physician and the patient.

Locally, Anchor Health Centers was bought out by Naples Community Hospital. This was a reaction to the Affordable Care Act, which lies heavily on Accountable Care Organizations (ACO’s). This is a term that you should become familiar with. In straight forward terms, and ACO is an organization that  works with the Federal government to receive payments. The ACO will then divide the payments to the individual members. There is a built-in incentive to keep cost down since the ACO can receive bonuses based on cost savings and quality indicators. Some of the principles that govern ACO are similar to managed care programs.  In order to form ACO’s, hospitals have ventured into the practice of employing doctors. NCHMD has become one of the largest employers of doctors here locally.  This has led to a loss of professionalism in medicine (unintentional). Doctors now are employees just like any other employee of the hospital. This has led to a loss of control of one’s own office and general dissatisfaction with all parties.  Physicians have reacted by not going to the hospital to see their patients and instead use hospitalists to admit their patients.  This has led to very fractionated care.  You see a doctor or nurse practitioner (NP) in the office, a doctor or NP in the ED, a hospitalist or hospitalist NP and then eventually you get back to your primary care doctor. During this process vital information is lost in all the hand offs. This has also led to patient dissatisfaction.

Concierge or Direct Primary Care bridges this gap by doing what physicians have done for hundreds of years….caring for their patients. At Naples Premier Concierge, we are committed to our patients and continue to try and offer the best healthcare experience.
