Advancing The Profession of Pharmacy

Day 4 – PATIENT CASH PAY PATH – Creating Programs & Services Patients Want & Need

by | Apr 4, 2020 | Consulting Pharmacist Education

The biggest issue most healthcare professionals face when creating truly innovative services for patients is when they take the plunge off the ‘insurance’ safety net.

When a patient, speaking from personal experience here, is willing to forgo the use of insurance to receive an innovative service, they need to believe in it 100%.

I’ve been experimenting with functional medicine using myself as a guinea pig for a few years now and so far the results have been weight loss, decreased inflammation, increased energy and balancing of hormone levels.

As I was talking with Sharzad Green and Emily Kirkwold about their programs, I really got inspired to begin seeking out a long term functional medicine practitioner who could support me in my journey.

Luckily I also spoke with Richard Harris and Michael Davidson about their integrative medicine practices, so I really got a better feel for exactly what I’d be looking for.

Then Anna Garrett and Emily Adamopolous rounded out the discussion by talking about their experiences with hiring coaches to help them build their consulting programs.

On Day 4, we really dig into the pros and cons of building a cash-based business model.
