What is Direct Primary Care?

Direct Primary Care is a grass roots movement that is reclaiming the primacy of the physician-patient relationship in primary care. Across the U.S. Family Physicians, general Internists and some general Pediatricians are developing models that allow patients/families to directly contract with their primary care clinicians. 

The FMEC serves as a first follower of the DPC movement. We first learned of DPC through the 2008 FMEC Innovators Network meeting. Working to support the DPC leaders, we sponsored the first DPC National Summits in 2013 and 2014. Each year following, we’ve co-sponsored the Summit with the American Academy of Family Physicians and the American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians and the DPC Alliance.

The FMEC also serves as connector among those interested in expanding the DPC model to improve patient outcomes while reducing the cost of care. We actively seek and share information about new uses of the DPC model. The FMEC supports a DPC Learning Community by providing weekly messages to interested parties regarding news and events related to DPC.
