Dr. Price and other speakers will share their experience and expertise on a range of topics including: industry trends; summary of business models; employer partnerships; succession planning; patient retention strategies; adding cash revenue services; overview of emerging Direct Primary Care (DPC) business models; Specialty Concierge Care; Future Perspectives; and other Telehealth Technologies; Entrepreneurship; Media Relations; Marketing; Branding and more. This year’s conference theme “What Great Doctors Do” encourages physicians to take a closer look at their role in changing the course of history and emerge as a change agent for free market healthcare delivery in their communities.

Concierge Doctors have a unique and different set of needs. They are early adopters in two critical areas: technology and testing. What makes this event unique is that we have a wide variety of relevant faculty discussing these topics. Not to mention, the significant number of the industry’s leading female voices we’re bringing to the gathering as well. Dr. Ellie Campbell, Charlene Jessup, Nina Grant, Julie Robinson, Leslie Mitchell, Dr. Lanalee Araba Sam and Mindy Koloff. Each of these women are respected industry influencers, experts and leaders in their respective fields and they will share their collective wisdom with us all.”

Another unique feature to the 2016 Concierge Medicine Assembly in Atlanta is the Mentoring-in-Minutes Session at the conclusion of the event on Saturday. It offers attendees the chance to have one-on-one conversations with industry professionals, successful Concierge Medicine physicians as well as industry thought leaders and provide an intimate expert exchange session with Concierge Medicine veterans.

“Physicians who find refuge in Concierge Care as a career find more time in their schedule for their patients” notes Michael Tetreault, Editor of Concierge Medicine Today. “In a culture that praises busyness, they are finding themselves on the right side of history. The data coming out of the industry from practices is proving the model works.”

The exhibit area will also showcase industry leading companies dedicated to Concierge Medicine, technology and tele-health.

“Conference attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in a Marketing Diagnostic consultation at no-charge,” says Nina Grant, Vice President of Practice Builders. “It features an online practice reputation assessment, a web site evaluation and a mystery shopper call to determine your staff’s abilities to convert callers. This assessment and follow up consultation is complimentary to you, as part of your registration fee for the Concierge Medicine Assembly.”
