Fix primary care and you fix all of medicine.
Which is why this discussion with Dr. John Bender can help point the way to big time solutions for all of us in healthcare.
Dr. Bender is a family physician with an innovative practice in Fort Collins, CO. He was a flight surgeon in the Navy, has testified before congress, and is on the board of the American Academy of Family Physicians among other accomplishments.
In this wide ranging discussion we talk about the roots of the dysfunction in our medical system, the causes of “moral injury” (AKA burnout), and the path to transforming primary care (via brave leadership) to a preventative, efficient model that returns the sacred doctor-patient relationship to the forefront while saving us money and improving outcomes. It’s Health 3.0 … and the direct primary care movement is at the heart of it.
