Abstract

A reform has long been needed to simplify and stabilize many of the areas within the healthcare sector. The volatile atmosphere that currently exists has caused multiple healthcare stakeholders to develop negative viewpoints towards the future. This is particularly evident in practicing physicians. Actions need to be taken to correct the issues that have developed. A potential solution to these problems could be realized by healthcare organizations adopting components of concierge medicine into their practices. This essay focuses on how concierge medicine can create an environment that may retain physicians as well as entice them to join the organization. This essay has significance, importance, and relevance in public health because how care is delivered directly impacts the health of the public. Therefore, healthcare systems need to be cognizant of the benefits of concierge medicine and should consider incorporating aspects into their organizations.
