It’s time for a new approach to healthcare.

We created this resource to show you how a value-based model of primary care allows you to spend more time with patients and deliver a better standard of care.

Then, learn how our advanced primary care model gives providers the time and tools they need to practice healthcare the way it should be practiced — by treating each patient as a whole person.

Here’s an excerpt from the resource:

Care takes time

A fee-for-service model rewards high-volume, surface-level care. This contributes to heavy patient loads, leaving primary care providers without enough time to get to know each patient and help them the way they want to. Primary care providers are stuck performing referral triage, sending patients to higher-cost specialists instead of practicing medicine at the top of their license.

  • The fee-for-service model forces primary care providers to be gatekeepers to the specialty care system

A value-based approach gives primary care providers time to listen to their patients. Lighter patient loads mean longer visits that allow providers to connect with patients in a more meaningful way.

  • “I was seeing 34 patients a day, in a 10-hour day. I loved my job, and I didn't want to burn out … What Vera has managed to miraculously do is they’ve given us the gift of time. And that is an irreplaceable thing in the practice of medicine.” — Dr. Jlyn Pritchard

When providers can take the time to listen to patients, they build the necessary knowledge and trust to care for each patient’s whole health.
