BOCA RATON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- MDVIP, the leader in affordable personalized healthcare, has substantially increased its number of patients. On its 10-year anniversary, it has now reached a milestone of over 150,000 members securing its position as the national leader in numbers of physicians and patients practicing personalized care. MDVIP-affiliated physicians believe that keeping people well is just as important as treating patients when they are sick. The preventive and wellness services offered by MDVIP can help lower costs, prevent illness and save lives.
The MDVIP model is helping consumers take control of their own health in this rapidly changing environment. MDVIP is a disruption to the conventional primary care “conveyor belt medicine” approach and is gaining increased momentum as consumers learn about their healthcare options. MDVIP puts within reach a level of care that had previously been associated only with the affluent. Due to the partnership that MDVIP-affiliated physicians and patients enjoy with an emphasis on prevention, annual membership renewals are at 92% and patient satisfaction is at 94% or above. Patients in MDVIP-affiliated practices have fewer hospitalizations than non-MDVIP patients with 75% reductions for Medicare beneficiaries and 65% reductions for those with commercial insurance.
By optimizing the physician’s patient population doctors are better able to focus on the patient’s total care. Each patient receives the MDVIP Wellness Program that encompasses leading-edge screenings and diagnostic testing and physician counseling focused on important health issues and wellness areas. Included are heart health, emotional well-being, diabetes prevention, respiratory health, quality of sleep, hearing and vision, sexual health, nutritional assessment, weight management, bone health, comprehensive risk factor analysis and face-to-face physician counseling. As part of the membership, MDVIP-affiliated physicians work with their patients to ensure they receive all the recommended prevention services. Each patient is provided with a personalized wellness plan to make them healthier. Through the travel and reciprocity program, patients who visit or travel to another state and need to see a doctor due to an urgent or emergency care situation can see any of the 450 MDVIP-affiliated physicians across the country on the same day, too.
Dan Hecht, CEO of MDVIP, commented, “Our goal is to continue to affiliate with exceptional physicians across the nation to help patients reach their full health potential. MDVIP’s strengths are in identifying innovative healthcare solutions, reinforcing better doctor-patient communication and driving improved outcomes. MDVIP has set the industry standard for personalized care by reaching 150,000 patients and fulfilling a strong consumer need. We expect to continue our growth well into the future due to increasing patient demand.”
